Ice Stories:  Why We Install GPS Systems (Podcast)
Running Time:
00:03:19
The POLENET project installed their newest high-precision GPS system on Deverall Island, Antarctica. These GPS systems tell scientists how much the ground underneath the ice sheet is moving upward. This has important implications on the movement of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet and its interplay with the rock below. Learn more about it in this audio report from correspondent Kelly Carroll.
