ROOSEVELT ISLAND CLIMATE EVOLUTION PROJECT
A Kiwi-led group of scientists have just returned from establishing a camp at the remote Roosevelt Island, some 700 km east of Scott Base. The Roosevelt Island Climate Evolution (RICE) project aims to quantify how stable the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) will be in a warming world. The significant distance to the site from Scott Base makes it one of the most logistically ambitious projects that Antarctica NZ has supported. Read or download the Press release here.
