First-ever Use of Airborne Resistivity System in Antarctica

Airborne-Resistivity-SystemA National Science Foundation-funded research team has successfully tested SkyTEM equipment to map the hidden distribution of groundwater and ice for the first time in Antarctica. The survey technique allows researchers to look beneath the surface .

The SkyTEM airborne electrical resistivity system enables researchers to study microbial ecosystsems in sub-glacial environments. Read more in National Science Foundation’s press release here.
