Antarctic Researchers look beneath the surface

National Science Foundation- (NSF) funded researchers have successfully tested equipment to map the hidden distribution of groundwater and ice in the McMurdo Dry Valleys region for the first time in Antarctica. The mapping technique, an airborne electrical resistivity instrument known as SkyTEM that is suspended beneath a helicopter, enables researchers to study microbial ecosystems in sub-glacial environments.
