About.. Projects.. Sites.. Photos.. Data.. Technology.. Links.. Blog.. In the News.. Contact.. POLENET GPS monument at Bennett Nunatak, Antarctica (Photo Credit: David Saddler, 2012).. POLENET is a global network dedicated to observing the polar regions in a changing world.. The project focuses on collecting GPS and seismic data from autonomous systems deployed at remote sites spanning much of the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets.. GPS and seismic measurements together provide a means to answer critical questions about ice sheet behavior in a warming world.. The unprecedented scale of the POLENET sensor network will allow investigation of systems-scale interactions of the solid earth, the cryosphere, the oceans and the atmosphere..

    Descriptive info: Technology | POLENET: The Polar Earth Observing Network.. Technology.. GNET GPS monument in southeast Greenland (Photo Credit: Jeremy Miner).. A Historical Perspective.. Early remote instrument deployments in the polar regions were limited by the necessity for a power grid source.. Using technology for self-powered instruments is dramatically expanding the scale of territory that can be measured.. For example, current A-NET deployments for the 2009-2010 season span a region that is roughly equivalent to the area of the United States east of the Mississippi River.. Autonomous  ...   months when sunlight is abundant.. In the winter months, however, when the poles are covered in constant darkness, wind power becomes important and the solar energy previously stored in battery banks is used to power the stations.. Communication satellites are used to transmit GPS data from the remote sites to the scientists.. The voluminous seismic data, however, must still be collected by returning to the stations..

The Columbus Dispatch.. 12 January 2008..  ...   against months of unrelenting darkness to install sites that will monitor the West Antarctic Ice Sheet in a study that could prove integral to the understanding of the melting ice caps.. So far the team has coped with everything from freezing temperatures to heavy gear and time constraints.. As Ice Melts, Antarctic Bedrock is On the Move.. COLUMBUS, Ohio -- As ice melts away from Antarctica, parts of the continental bedrock are rising in response -- and other parts are sinking, scientists have discovered.. The finding will give much needed perspective to satellite instruments that measure ice loss on the continent, and help improve estimates of future sea level rise.. These results are being derived from the building of POLENET, a growing network of Global positioning system (GPS) trackers and seismic sensors implanted in the bedrock beneath the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS), reoccupying sites previously measured by the West Antarctic GPS Network (WAGN) and the Transantarctic Mountains Deformation (TAMDEF) network..

The vast ice fields of Antarctica and Greenland cloak many mysteries of how the underlying bedrock has responded to the growth and retreat of crushing ice sheets.. Up to now, scientists have gleaned slivers of insight by collecting seasonal data from exposed mountain ranges and isolated rocky outcroppings, called nunataks.. During the International Polar Year, scientists and engineers from 28 countries are instrumenting the length and breadth of Antarctica and Greenland to form a network of sensors, called POLENET (Polar Earth Observing Network) that will continuously monitor the earth beneath the ice..
