Researcher in Antarctica waits for plane.

Remote Research

In the low light of Antarctic spring, a researcher on the ice watches for a plane. A research team, including MIT-WHOI Joint Program student Laura Stevens, traveled to the Ross Ice Shelf in November 2016 to retrieve sensors deployed in 2014. The sensors measured vibrations traveling through the ice from the seaward ice edge. Scientists studying ice shelves and their stability, including WHOI seismologist Ralph Stephen and collaborators at Scripps institution of Oceanography, Washington University in St. Louis, and Colorado State University, will use the data to identify areas of weakness in the shelf.
