Project Description
There are a number of countries conducting research in the Antarctic Peninsula under the Glaciology of the Antarctic Peninsula (GAP) program. The record of past ice-sheet configuration, oceanographic characteristics, and atmospheric circulation patterns produced by GAP researchers will be of obvious relevance to WAIS investigations. WAIS will maintain open communication with GAP researchers to keep them informed of planned WAIS investigations and important results, and to facilitate collaborations between investigators that will benefit each program.
