FDSN Network Information

FDSN code 1D (2010-2011) Operated by UC Santa Cruz
Network name Elevation change anomalies in West Antarctica and dynamics of subglacial water beneath ice streams and their tributaries (Whillans/UCSC) Deployment region United States
Start date Jan. 1, 2010 End date Dec. 31, 2011
Short description

The collaborative experiment uses continuous GPS to study the hydraulics of the subglacial lake system on Whillans Ice Stream (WIS). In addition to the presence of subglacial lakes, WIS undergoes stick-slip motion accomodating up to 0.5 m of slip in 30 min episodes, twice daily, A supplement to this grant funds the graduate student, Jacob Walter, to use passive broadband seismometers to study the stick-slip episodes, in consult with his co-advisors, Susan Schwartz, Emily Brodsky, and Slawek Tulaczyk
