Three researchers from the University of Lapland's Arctic Centre are in Antarctica and are blogging their research and life there: Glaciologist-paleoclimatologist John Moore, geophysicist Aslak Grinsted and chemist Kristiina Virkkunen. Their blog is here.
They are doing research on a blue ice area about 200 km from Aboa, the Finnish research station. The main goal of the expedition is to collect an approximately 500-meter long horizontal ice core for climate history studies. The ice samples will later be analyzed in Finland for ions. Other experiments will look at the dust content and electric conductivity of the ice using different methods, including lasers.
