  • Antarctic Technology Offshore Lagoon Laboratory - Video Learning - WizScience.com

    The "Antarctic Technology Offshore Lagoon Laboratory" was a floating oceanographic laboratory for "in situ" observation experiments. This facility also tested instruments and equipment for polar expeditions. The ATOLL hull was the largest fiberglass structure ever built at that time. It was in operation from 1982 to 1995. The ATOLL was composed of three curved fiberglass elements, each 25 m long and having a draught of only 38 cm. For towing, the elements could be assembled in a long S-shape; in operation, the elements would form a horseshoe shape surrounding 150 m² water surface. The lab provided ample space for twelve researchers. The laboratory contained a lab, storage and supply facilities, a dormitory, computer room, and a fireplace.

    NASA's Operation IceBridge has launched its Antarctic 2012 campaign, flying high-priority missions measuring polar ice from a base of operations at the tip of Patagonia on the Strait of Magellan. They have even made a return visit to the Pine Island Glacier, the site of last year's discovery of a massive rift in the ice. Sea ice doesn't always hold the allure of a massive ice sheet, or a crevassed blue glacier spilling between mountains, but it comes in array of shapes and sizes and has its own ephemeral beauty. Operation IceBridge studies sea ice at both poles, and also runs across interesting formations on route to other targets. Operation IceBridge returned to the Pine Island Glacier twice in 2012, and NASA glaciologist Kelly Brunt discusses the implications of the glacier's impending ...

  • Scientists find tower-high channel beneath Antarctica ice shelf

    Originally published on October 8, 2013 UK scientists have found huge ice channels under the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf in West Antarctica. Giant channels of water said to be almost as tall as the Eiffel Tower are flowing beneath the ice shelf. The study was conducted by researchers at the University of Exeter and colleagues from Newcastle University and the University of Bristol. They used satellite images and airborne radar measurements to find meltwater channels. It was reported that one of the newly discovered ice-channels was about 250 meters high and 300 meters wide, similar in height to the Eiffel Tower and Tower Bridge of London in width. The study shows that once the cold melt water from the ice shelf reaches the sea, it forms a plume and warms the surrounding sea water. The war...

The laboratory was installed and operated in the Baltic Sea at the initiative and under the direction of Uwe Kils, at the Institute of Oceanography of the University of Kiel. The fiberglass hulls themselves were bought from Waki Zöllner's "Atoll" company. The onboard computer was a NeXT and the first versions of the of Antarctic krill for interactive dives into their morphology and behavior were developed here, finding later mention in Science magazine. The lab was connected to the Internet via a radio link, and the first images of ocean critters on the internet came from this NeXT. The first ever "in situ" videos of Atlantic herring feeding on copepods were recorded from this lab . An underwater observation and experimentation room allowed direct observation and manipulation through large portholes. Wiz Science™ is "the" learning channel for children and all ages.

Operation IceBridge returned to the Pine Island Glacier twice in 2012, and NASA glaciologist Kelly Brunt discusses the implications of the glacier's impending calving event. Operation IceBridge has now returned to the Pine Island Glacier, not once, but twice in 2012. And the year-old giant crack in the glacier, poised to create an iceberg the size of New York City? Well it's still there, and that iceberg has yet to break free. But the rift has grown longer, much wider, and spawned a secondary crack. Before we talk about when that mighty berg will be born, let's take a look at the IceBridge missions themselves. IceBridge's first return to the region was a high altitude flight over the entire region, including the Thwaites, Smith, and Kohler glaciers. After this campaign is over, scientists will be able to compare this broad survey with previous years' measurements in order to better document the rapid and widespread changes in the region over time.

Giant channels of water said to be almost as tall as the Eiffel Tower are flowing beneath the ice shelf. The study was conducted by researchers at the University of Exeter and colleagues from Newcastle University and the University of Bristol.

It was reported that one of the newly discovered ice-channels was about 250 meters high and 300 meters wide, similar in height to the Eiffel Tower and Tower Bridge of London in width. The study shows that once the cold melt water from the ice shelf reaches the sea, it forms a plume and warms the surrounding sea water. The warmed water then wears a channel into the floating ice of the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf. Previously, it was believed that melt water which builds up on land would flow into the sea in a thin layer, rather than in concentrated channels. It was reported that the scientists believe ice channels play an important role in stabilizing the ice shelf. This discovery can help researchers understand how Antarctica will respond to climate change in the future. -------------------------------------------------------- TomoNews is your daily source for top animated news.

The average weight of a commercially caught Patagonian toothfish is 9--10 kg (20--22 lb), with large adults occasionally exceeding 200 kilograms (440 lb). They are thought to live up to fifty years[1] and to reach a length up to 2.3 m (7.5 ft). A commercial fishery exists for Patagonian toothfish; the meat is sold under the trade names Chilean sea bass in the USA; merluza negra Argentina, and Uruguay where it is relatively cheap; and mero in Chile, South Korea, and Japan where it is sold at high prices. The name Chilean Sea Bass supposedly originated as part of a marketing gimmick to make the fish more marketable (as opposed to selling Patagonian toothfish).[2] Patagonian toothfish feed largely on squid, fish, and prawns and, in turn, constitute a large part of the diets of sperm whales, southern elephant seals, and colossal squid.

The first of three ice-breaking rescue ships is expected to reach an expedition vessel trapped in frozen seas off Antarctica by Friday, the voyage's leader told via Skype. "We just want to assure family and friends, everyone is fine, the vessel is safe, and we're looking forward to getting home and having a decent cup of coffee soon," said Chris Turney, expedition leader and professor of climate change at University of New South Wales in Australia. He said crew members, researchers and tourists aboard were doing "amazingly well." "Morale is remarkably high," he added Thursday in the Skype interview, whose video displayed a whited-out scenery. The MV Akademik Shokalskiy, with 74 people aboard, became locked in sea ice Monday night and spent the next 12 hours with all aboard hoping that high winds would subside. They didn't. So, the ship spent Christmas at a frozen standstill 100 nautical miles east of the French base Dumont D'Urville, about 1,500 nautical miles south of Hobart, Tasmania. "We had a great Christmas," Turney said, though everyone was frustrated about not being able to venture out into the open ocean. "This is an area of enormous change. We're in an area of a big driver of global climate," Turney said. "We wanted to come here to see how much change has taken place. "Ironically, this is actually giving us extra time to do research," he said about being stuck in the frozen waters. He joked that he gave researchers the day off on Christmas, though. "We're looking at life under the sea ice," he added. A Chinese ice breaker called the Snow Dragon, or Xue Long, was en route from Freemantle, Australia, to the Ross Sea at Antarctica and could reach the stuck vessel by Friday. Meanwhile, the French vessel Astrolabe is just 17 nautical miles away and is also expected to reach the trapped researchers and tourists by Friday. An Australian ship, the Aurora Australis, is expected to arrive later, the expedition's website said Thursday. "Between the three of them, we're hoping to get out relatively quickly," Turney said. A British rescue coordination center received a satellite distress signal on Christmas morning from the Russian-flagged ship and contacted the Australian Maritime Safety Authority, which handles the Southern Ocean region where the vessel was stuck, a safety authority statement said. Turney said everyone aboard the expedition vessel is scheduled to return to southern New Zealand by January 4. Expeditions Online, a polar booking agent for the MV Akademik Shokalskiy, said on its website that the ship got stuck "partway through her Australasian Antarctic Expedition towards Mawson's Hut at Cape Denison." The Expeditions Online website described the ship as "a fully ice-strengthened expedition vessel" for working in polar regions. "This class of vessel is world-renowned for polar exploration, because of its strength, maneuverability and small passenger numbers," the company's website said.

The United States Navy brings the viewer “Seabees In The Antarctic: Base Construction,” a circa 1959 color film detailing the construction of scientific research stations by Task Force 43 as part of Operation Deep Freeze. The station was part of the US Navy's contribution to the IGY (International Geophysical Year) in 1957. We learn, starting at mark 00:43, how the Navy’s Construction Battalion Center in Rhode Island established a special mobile construction battalion to construct and maintain such scientific outposts. Crews underwent specialized conditioning, shown at mark 01:30, to prepare them for the brutal temperatures in Antarctica and to enable them to construct a naval base at Little America on the coast of the Ross Sea as well as a naval air facility at McMurdo Sound. By mark 04:00 the film shows tons of supplies coming ashore as tractors smoothed the snow ahead of the job. As the film continues, sailors are shown laying foundations and erecting structures in the frigid air. By mark 10:50, the film shows crews preparing the area for what would become heavy air operations at McMurdo Sound including construction of heavy duty 250,000 gallon storage tanks to be used for fuel, which was pumped from a tanker anchored off shore. By mark 12:30, the Seabees roll was completed as both sites became operational. The construction crews would remain in the area, we are told, to construct other facilities including Ellsworth Station, Pole Station, Wilkes Station, Byrd Station, and Cape Hallett, all of which would be used to support various scientific operations of the IGY project. The USS Wyandot (AKA-92), an attack cargo ship, is shown unloading supplies at Ellsworth Station on the Weddell Sea at mark 13:33 during the operation, with scenes from other stations filling the remainder of the film. A Seabee is a member of the United States Naval Construction Forces (NCF). The word "Seabee" is actually a heterograph of the first initials of the words "Construction Battalion" i.e. CB = Seabee. The Seabees legacy comes from the constructing of hundreds of miles of airstrips and roadways, the dredging of harbors and building of piers, while building anything and everything it took to accomplish the mission in whatever theater they were assigned going back to 1942. In 1955, Seabees began deploying yearly to the continent of Antarctica. As participants in Operation Deep Freeze, their mission was to build and expand scientific bases located on the frozen continent. The first "wintering over" party included 200 Seabees who distinguished themselves by constructing a 6,000-foot (1,800 m) ice runway on McMurdo Sound. Despite a blizzard that once destroyed the entire project, the airstrip was completed in time for the advance party of Deep Freeze II to become the first to arrive at the South Pole by plane. Over the following years and under adverse conditions, Seabees added to their list of accomplishments such things as snow-compacted roads, underground storage, laboratories, and living areas. One of the most notable achievements took place in 1962, when the Navy's builders constructed Antarctica's first nuclear power plant, at McMurdo Station. Another, in 1975, was the construction of the Buckminster Fuller Geodesic dome at Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station with a diameter of 164' x 52' high.
