Gravity variation and vertical motion in polar regions - Constraints on post-glacial rebound and present-day ice melting (GRAVITE)

Absolute gravity measurements are necessary to build models of the geoid. Repeat measurements are complementary to precise positioning measurements in providing tools to constrain both the ice-mass variations over the polar regions and the post-glacial rebound. We propose to initiate or repeat absolute gravity observations in the polar regions. In

Thank you for adding your research project to the growing pool of knowledge about the research going on in Svalbard and its surrounding waters!

As we would like you to know a bit about what is going on in Svalbard in your discipline and fieldwork surroundings, we have selected some projects that should be interesting for you to have a look at. There are {{related}} projects registered in RiS that match with your keywords, and below you will find links to the 3 that have the most relevant match.

As we all work to reduce our environmental footprint, we want to give you an easy way to find projects that have fieldwork close to you, so you can contact the project owner and coordinate your logistics whenever possible. This could also help you save some expensive costs ;) There are {{close}} projects registered in RiS that have registered their fieldwork sites within 10 km from you, and below you will find links to the 3 closest fieldwork locations.

Summary

Absolute gravity measurements are necessary to build models of the geoid. Repeat measurements are complementary to precise positioning measurements in providing tools to constrain both the ice-mass variations over the polar regions and the post-glacial rebound. We propose to initiate or repeat absolute gravity observations in the polar regions. In the Arctic, measurements will be performed at the Ny-Alesund Station, Svalbard, in 2012 and 2014. In Antarctica, measurements will be performed at the O'Higgins, Palmer and Rothera Stations in the Antarctic Peninsula in 2013 and at the McMurdo Station, Scott Base, Mario Zucchelli Station in the Ross Sea Embayment and Dumont d'Urville Station in Terre Adelie in 2015.
