The characterisation of ice physical properties from seismic data

A seminar by Franz Lutz, University of Otago

Crystal alignment fabrics and temperature of ice are key determinants on the deformation of ice and important parameters to consider for projections of ice sheet flow. Their character and distribution in polar ice caps are however only sparsely known, based on observations from few sites of deep ice coring.

The study of seismic parameters offers an alternative to constrain ice physical properties without the logistically challenging retrieval of core samples. Findings from seismic experiments covering different scales and methods at two Antarctic sites will be presented.

The talk will take place in the Benson common room with up to 18 seats available for in-person attendees.

You will also be able to join remotely via Zoom.
