Monitoring the Environmental Impacts of Humans in Antarctica

Our research applies state-of–the-art monitoring tools to better our understanding of the spatial and temporal patterns of localized human impacts in cold regions using Antarctica as an exemplar study site.

Our project currently focuses on the study of localized human impacts in the terrestrial and marine environments adjacent to McMurdo Station - the largest scientific station on the continent where have been working since 1999.

In the near future we intend to expand our environmental monitoring to the McMurdo Dry Valleys and Palmer Station.

We next deploy to McMurdo Station in early November 2013 and you can follow our research on our educational outreach site islandtoice.org

Our research is sponsored by the National Science Foundation's Division of Polar Programs and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory.
