Abstract

Reconstructing ice-sheet dynamics of the Amundsen Sea Embayment with MeBo drilling and seismics:
2016-12-15 to 2017-05-02
Glacial-marine sediment cores will be drilled with the seabed drilling device MeBo on the Amundsen Sea shelf (West Antarctica) to help reconstruct past ice-sheet dynamics. Seismic surveying will extend the seismic network to better correlate the drill sites.
