Seismometers populate Borchgrevik Ridge (part 1)

A field team from Princess Elisabeth helps Denis Lombardi from the Royal Observatory of Belgium install seismometers on Borschgrevik Ridge, 32 km away from the station. Dr. Lombardi's goal during the 2013-2014 season is to install a transect of seismometers across the western Sør Rondane Mountains, as part of the GIANT-LISSA research project. The overall objective of the multi-year research project is to collect data that will contribute to a better understanding of the mass balance of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet, and learn more about the deep structure of the Antarctic continent and intra-plate seismicity in the region.
