PRI Shows How Seals Assist Scientists with Predictions of the Thwaites Glacier Collapse new item Jul 15, 2019

PRI Shows How Seals Assist Scientists with Predictions of the Thwaites Glacier Collapse

Weddell seals dive almost 2,000 feet below the ocean's surface. Elephant seals (such as the one in this 2005 photo) go even deeper - more than 3,000 feet. That means if scientists equip them with sensors, the seals are ideal for measuring the ocean's temperature at different depths.

Independence Day on The Ice Jul 11, 2019

Independence Day on The Ice

Personnel at McMurdo Station, Antarctica used their lunch break on July 5 to celebrate Independence Day with a parade. Aside from taking place on a continent experiencing 24 hours of darkness, many things would have been familiar in any parade on a typical "Main Street USA": fire engines, baton twirlers, flags, and smiling and waving military veterans.

A Celebrity Chef's Passion for Science Jul 1, 2019

A Celebrity Chef's Passion for Science

Angela Zoumplis, a biologist at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, earlier this week wrote on the opinion pages of the New York Times about a visit to a field camp in the McMurdo Dry Valleys by the late celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain. One of several researchers who discussed their work and Antarctic experience with Bourdain on and off camera at NSF's Lake Hoare Camp, she was initially a bit perplexed about why he had come to the southernmost continent.

Antarctic Stations Celebrate 2019 Midwinter's Day Jun 21, 2019

Antarctic Stations Celebrate 2019 Midwinter's Day

In Antarctica, the winter solstice is the longest night of the year and marks the halfway point of winter. Since the time of the early explorers, those people who have chosen to stay and work in Antarctica during the long dark night have celebrated Midwinter's Day.

Researchers Uncover Trove of Ancient Fossils That Highlight Antarctica as an Evolutionary Crucible Jun 20, 2019

Researchers Uncover Trove of Ancient Fossils That Highlight Antarctica as an Evolutionary Crucible

The mountains of Antarctica may seem an unlikely place to find fish, but they were exactly what a team of paleontologists working along the edge of the Polar Plateau last winter were looking for. In a region now defined by dry rocky terrain poking up through vast sheets of thick ice, the five-member team spent much of December and January scouring the exposed landscape for the remains of ancient fish.

Large-scale Images of Antarctic Landscapes at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County May 29, 2019

Large-scale Images of Antarctic Landscapes at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County

The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County is hosting an exhibition of large-scale images of Antarctic landscapes by Diane Tuft, who was a 2012 participant in OPP's Antarctic Artists and Writers program. The exhibit, Frozen in Time, which opened on May 23 and runs through Jan. 20, captures "the landscape in abstract ways," according to the museum, "her 13 large-scale photographs illustrate a whole new perspective on Antarctica."
