SC1 Antarctic Geothermal Heat Flux

 

 

OBJECTIVES:

  • Support efforts to provide refined and robust estimates of geothermal heat flow in Antarctica.
  • Understand how geothermal heat impacts the ice sheets.
  • Connect Antarctic geothermal models and data to heat flow studies in other continents.
  • Support open access to data, models and code. 
  • Facilitate links between ice sheet modellers, geologists. solid Earth geophysics and hydrologists .
