121 viewsNSIDC lead scientist Ted Scambos and Erin Pettit, glaciologist at University of Alaska, Fairbanks, pause for a picture in front of the peaks and glaciers ringing Beascochea Bay during the 2013 LARISSA Project. 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 about the project on http://iceshelf.wordpress.com.
