PolarTREC staff and alumni are attending the American Geophysical Union meeting, 14-19 December 2014. Many of the PolarTREC-related presentations can be found here, along with a list of PolarTREC Researchers presenting on their science. We will update this meeting page with results and presentations to share. See you there!
VelVeT Ice in West Antarctica
Yamini Bala is with her team in Antarctica to study ice crystals and how their structure effects the flow of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet! They are at a remote field camp, but Yamini Bala will send out journals about her participation in the teamwork.
Explore with Weddell Seals
Alex Eilers is back with her team in Antarctica studying the Weddell seals. They are gathering lots of information on the seals to understanding their body conditions throughout the year. You can also check out Alex's webpage at antarcticarevisited.com.
Teacher Brian DuBay is in high demand by his research team. He is still teaching, but is also a full field team member! He is back down to the ice to study the tectonic history of the Transantarctic Mountains.

Lucy Coleman and her team are in the Dry Valleys. At their remote field camp near Lake Joyce they are studying microbialites. Her communications are limited but she has been able to send amazing journals and photos!
