the sound of antarctica
Researchers from the American Geophysical Union have found, by deploying seismographs across the Ross
These super sensitive instruments (placed in the shelf’s near-surface) picked up different frequencies and ‘spectral changes’ as it experienced storms and (importantly) melting events like the one in 2016.
The findings suggest seismological monitoring has the potential to track (and give a voice to) the turbulent fluctuations of Antarctic ice shelves.
