Hard Rock, Cold Ice

The New York Times is running a guest blog by American geology professors John Goodge and Jeff Vervoort on their current field season in Antarctica. Goodge and colleagues have been spending the lest decade or two trying to figure out what the geology of Antarctica is underneath the Antarctic ice sheet. The posts describe both the scientific rationale and methodology, and the considerable complications of operating on a frozen continent half a world away from civilization.
