134 viewsScientists prepare their instruments on 2- to 3-meter thick sea ice filling the former Larsen B shelf area, during the 2013 LARISSA expedition. The Larsen Ice Shelf System, Antarctica (LARISSA) Project is a large, interdisciplinary, multi-institute study to explore every aspect of the deteriorating Larsen Ice Shelf region in Antarctica. Participating researchers set up instruments on the glaciers that feed into the remaining portion of the Larsen ice shelf. As changes occur on the ice, the stations will record it in data and pictures. (Credit: Ted Scambos, NSIDC) Read the expedition blog on http://iceshelf.wordpress.com.

132 viewsAn even closer close-up of the wall of the snow pit, showing a couple of layers in the snow. These particular kinds of layers form when big snow storms occur with strong winds that cause the snow to compact at what was then the surface. Other layers may be caused by melting and refreezing of snow. Photo by John Maurer, CIRES/NSIDC, University of Colorado.
