Polar and Alpine Events Calendar
We are pleased to announce the next talk in our Webinar Series on Ice Sheets, Sea Level and GIA in the months leading up to the WCRP Sea Level Meeting (https://www.sealevelconference.org/) and PALSEA workshop (https://palseagroup.weebly.com/), both in Singapore and online in July, 2022.
The talk is scheduled for May 10 (2 p.m. Eastern, 11am Pacific, 8 p.m. Central European)/May 11 (6:00 a.m. Wellington, N.Z.)
Terry Wilson and Doug Wiens on “Cryosphere – Solid Earth Interactions in Antarctica: Insights from Geodetic and Seismic Measurements”
Terry Wilson is Academy Professor in the School of Earth Sciences and senior research scientist in the Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center at the Ohio State University. With her research group and collaborators, she investigates the structural architecture of Antarctica and the interactions between the solid Earth and the Antarctic ice sheet, using structural field observations, geophysical and geodetic data; she has spent 25 austral summers collecting field data in Antarctica. The Antarctic Network (ANET) of the Polar Earth Observing Network (POLENET), a collaborative project led by Wilson, operates autonomous GNSS and seismic sensors across West Antarctica.
Doug Wiens is the Robert S. Brookings Professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Washington University in St Louis. He has worked extensively on the structure of the Antarctic continent, as well as ice quakes and other seismic phenomena in Antarctica. He has participated in the development of seismic instrumentation and the deployment of seismographs in Antarctica going back to the 1990s. He also works on the structure and seismicity of subduction zones in the Western Pacific, using data from ocean bottom seismographs.
