SCAR logo 2018 white backgroundHave you ever wondered why geothermal heat flow is important for the Antarctic Ice Sheet? We are delighted to announce that members of the SCAR-SERCE sub-group on geothermal heat flow (GHF), have produced a White Paper titled 'Antarctic Geothermal Heat Flow: Future Research directions'. The paper is led by Alex Burton-Johnson (BAS) with contributions from researchers across a wide range of disciplines. It provides an overview of the importance of understanding GHF across Antarctica, and the current methods and discrepancies associated with tying to characterise this important property when there are several kilometres of ice in the way! The White Paper can be downloaded from the SERCE news page, where we have also posted a short video.
