NASA Announces Briefing on Discovery Beneath Antarctic Ice Sheet
WASHINGTON - Researchers from NASA and the Scripps Institute of Oceanography, La Jolla, Calif., will unveil new results from an unprecedented study of water deep beneath the Antarctic ice sheet. The study will be presented on Thursday, Feb. 15 at 2 p.m. EDT (11 a.m. PDT) during the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) at Hotel Nikko, San Francisco.
Using data from NASA satellites, the scientists created a technique that offers a breakthrough perspective of the ice sheet and the environment far below its surface. The study will be published in the Feb. 16 edition of Science magazine.
Robert Bindschadler of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md., and Helen Amanda Fricker of Scripps will discuss their findings and answer media questions. Interested media should contact AAAS at firstname.lastname@example.org
