Drone experts from Culdrose have given the Royal Navy’s Antarctic research ship ‘eyes in the sky’ to help Ice Patrol HMS Protector punch through the polar ice. Seventeen of the icebreaker’s crew are now qualified in operating drones from the deck of the ship, which has just completed her stint around the frozen continent for this season.
Argentina's National Antarctic Directorate (DNA) is looking for engineers and students of computer and electronic engineering to fill a dozen technical positions during the winter at the permanent bases Orcadas, Belgrano II, San Martín, Marambio, and Carlini in 2023.
The Government of Chile has called out for bids to build what will be known as the International Antarctic Center (CAI) in Punta Arenas, it was abbounced in Santiago. The US$-80-million development is expected to foster research on Antarctic matters to position that location as the country's main gateway to Antarctica.
Advanced ocean modeling techniques reveal how greenhouse gas emissions contribute to warmer oceans and the resulting melting of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. A new study by scientists Kaitlin Naughten and Paul Holland from British Antarctic Survey (BAS) provides the first evidence that rising greenhouse gases have a long-term warming effect on the Amundsen Sea in West Antarctica.
The UK Antarctic Heritage Trust is offering part-time job opportunities for qualified candidates willing to spend several months at Port Lockroy, Base A.
Falklands' flagged RRS Sir David Attenborough is completing ice trials during its maiden voyage to Antarctica – a critical milestone in the commissioning of Britain’s new polar ship. This is the first in a series of trials to get the ship ready for multi-disciplinary science missions.
A £5m project funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) to investigate the complex changes seen in sea ice around the Antarctic begins this month (March 2022) as the sea ice extent around the continent drops to a record low level.
The Conger Shelf, a 460-square-kilometers mass of ice has disintegrated in East Antarctica, it was reported over the weekend. It was the first to break up in four decades of satellite observations. The event took place on March 15.
Rising temperatures in Antarctica have seen two species of plants grow quicker, in a ten year period, because of climate change, according to an article published in Current Biology under the heading of “Acceleration of climate warming and plant dynamics in Antarctica”
A team of geologists found a group of creatures in an area of Antarctica where life was deemed near to impossible, it was reported.
