LAWRENCE — A section of Antarctica now bears the name of a University of Kansas professor and alumnus. The U.S. Board on Geographic Names announced it has registered the “Gogineni Subglacial Trench,” which acknowledges the contributions of School of Engineering Distinguished Professor Prasad...
LAWRENCE — Sea-level rise is likely to be among the harshest consequences of global climate change. Higher oceans would spell catastrophe for coastal habitats and hundreds of millions of people around the world. But the rate and extent of sea-level rise are challenging for researchers to gauge. The...
LAWRENCE — A team of researchers from the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets at The University of Kansas recently returned from Antarctica, where they collected data on ice sheet surface elevation, bedrock topography and internal structure of ice sheets.
A group of researchers from the Center for the Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets at the University of Kansas is right now at the sub-glacial Lake Whillans field camp on the Whillans Ice Stream in Antarctica. The team is testing a system they’ve devised that includes a 100-watt ice-penetrating radar...
Buried underneath compacted snow and ice in Greenland lies a large liquid water reservoir that has now been mapped by researchers using data from NASA's Operation IceBridge airborne campaign.
Big surprises still hide beneath the frozen surface of snowy Greenland. Despite decades of poking and prodding by scientists, only now has the massive ice island revealed a hidden aquifer.
CReSIS co-authored research in the journal Nature Geoscience finds melt water within Greenland's southern ice sheet persists year-round. An aquifer the size of Ireland was discovered in the ice sheet with the assistance of CReSIS researchers and technology. The discovery could lead to important...
That researcher is Leuschen's husband, Carl Leuschen, who is part of KU's Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets, or CReSIS. He has been in Antarctica about three weeks, and was just getting ready to leave from the coastal base camp known as McMurdo Station for a month-long trek onto an ice sheet...
Other instruments aboard the P-3 also helped build a clearer view of changing Antarctic ice. The Multichannel Coherent Radar Depth Sounder, or MCoRDS, operated by the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets at the University of Kansas, Lawrence, Kansas, is a radar instrument that can measure ice...
The action is taking place at the Center for the Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS), a National Science Foundation-funded center at the University. Maintaining the fondness for synonyms, the mapping radar the scientists are using is known as the Multichannel Coherent Radar Depth Sounder or...
IceBridge is carrying a suite of radar instruments designed, built and operated by scientists, engineers and university students with the Center for the Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS), a National Science Foundation-funded center based at the University of Kansas.
The bedrock hidden beneath the thick ice sheets covering Greenland and Antarctica has intrigued researchers for years. Scientists are interested in how the shape of this hidden terrain affects how ice moves—a key factor in making predictions about the future of these massive ice reservoirs and...
IceBridge is currently carrying a suite of radar instruments. One radar instrument in particular is currently headed to Antarctica for another year of observations and may reveal insights about the bedrock hidden beneath the ice sheet.
In addition to the primary laser altimeter, the IceBridge airborne laboratories are also outfitted with various radars External Non-U.S. government site developed by the University of Kansas’s Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) External Non-U.S. government site, a NSF-funded Science...
David Braaten, the deputy director of the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets, said he is uncertain of what is next for the project he is working with, which measures ice sheets and how the change in ice sheets will affect sea level.
Warren's memo singled out the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation and as federal research partners that had gone dark. NSF's U.S. Antarctic Program, in which KU's Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheetshas participated, was among the specific research projects halted by the...
KU's Center for the Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets, or CReSIS, had two projects planned for Antarctica for the season, one of them a collaboration with NASA, another agency facing furloughs and near-full shutdown.
At Kansas University, the shutdown threatens to derail three research projects in Antarctica, two by the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets, or CreSIS, and one by a professor of paleobiology. The National Science Foundation has said that when its funding runs out on Oct. 14, it will cut most...
Data from a NASA airborne science mission reveals evidence of a large and previously unknown canyon hidden under a mile of Greenland ice.
