Presenter: Samantha Hansen, University of Alabama

Summary: Over the past decade, polar seismology in Antarctica has been
advanced by a number of large-scale broadband seismic deployments,
including the Transantarctic Mountains Seismic Experiment (TAMSEIS), the
Gamburtsev Antarctic Mountains Seismic Experiment (GAMSEIS), and the
Polar Earth Observing Network (POLENET). The logistics associated with
working in such an extreme environment are quite challenging, but data
from these different networks have greatly improved our knowledge about
Antarctica’s geologic structure and tectonic development. This
presentation will focus on the unique working conditions in Antarctica
and will highlight results from a number of seismic investigations with
contributions from collaborators at the Washington University in St.
Louis, New Mexico Tech, and the Pennsylvania State University. Future
directions for Antarctic seismology and details about upcoming field
deployments will also be shared.
