POLENET Media Guide
Project Description

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

The project focuses on collecting GPS and seismic data from autonomous systems deployed 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.
The unprecedented scale of the POLENET sensor network will allow investigation of systems-scale interactions of the solid earth, the cryosphere, the oceans and the atmosphere.

POLENET data will enable new studies of the inner earth, tectonic plates, the earth’s magnetic field, climate and weather, and the solar wind, and will lead to as yet unimagined discoveries about the critical polar regions of our planet.

This media guide was designed to provide a snapshot of the POLENET program and specifically targeted the media. Due to the broad nature of the booklet, it was also given to scientists, educators, and the general public.
