FDSN Network Information

FDSN code 8A (2008-2009) Operated by IRIS PASSCAL Instrument Center @ New Mexico Tech
Network name IPY: Stability of Larsen C Ice Shelf in a Warming Climate (Larsen Ice Shelf) Deployment region United States
Start date Jan. 1, 2008 End date Dec. 31, 2009
Short description

We propose a field experiment with partners from Chile and the Netherlands to determine the state of health and stability of Larsen C ice shelf in response to climate change. We will combine existing data with new measurements to assess what physical processes are controlling the weakening of the ice shelf, whether a break up is likely, and provide baseline data to quantify the consequences of a breakup.
