Field Activities




A sustained field and laboratory effort with a major research focus on glaciology and climate variability were initiated since 2005. Major field campaigns conducted during 2013-14 include:

  • Ice core drilling (IND 33/B8; Depth - 101.4 m) in central Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica
  • Photo-biogeochemical process measurements and snow/ice sampling in Larsemann Hills, Antarctica
