Start year 1995 End year 1996
Short description

Record microearthquakes from the base of the ice streams of West Antarctica and correlate the rates of seismicity to the flow speed of the overlaying ice. The theory of water diversion is to be tested, whereby the basal hydrologic system has been disrupted resulting in an increase in seismicity and a decrease in ice flow speeds.
