New Antarctic Lynx

Here are some cool new stories relating to the Antarctic: Pine Island Glacier, On NPR, And MSNBC. There is a lot of really cool science planned for this area. There will actually be helicopter support to events around PIG, and a huge amount of logistical support will happen in the next couple of years. I'm not personally involved in any of that planning now, but I may be at some point in the future. There is an old abandoned field camp out on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet called Byrd Surface Camp, which will be resurrected to support the PIG projects, and other activity out there on the ice sheet. The ice is racing out to sea in several areas like the area around the PIG, and scientists are very keen on finding out what is going on. If the ice sheet continues to pour into the sea, the result will be rising sea levels.
