POLENET Interactive
Project Description

POLENET (The Polar Earth Observing Network) is a global network dedicated to observing the polar regions in a changing world.

The project is primarily focused on collecting GPS and seismic data from autonomous systems, but also includes geophysical observations such as magnetics, tide gauge, and gravity measurements.  Equipment deployments are at remote sites spanning much of the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets. GPS and seismic measurements together provide a means to answer critical questions about ice sheet behavior in a warming world.

This interactive site highlights POLENET science, including isostatic rebound, GPS, and seismology. It also provides an interactive exploration of living and working at Byrd Camp in West Antarctica.

*Note: site will not work on non-Flash enabled devices.
