1. A Broadband Seismic Experiment to Image the Lithosphere Beneath the Gamburtsev Mountains and Surrounding Areas, East Antarctica [NSF-ANT05-37371]
This award supports a seismological study of the Gamburtsev Subglacial Mountains (GSM), a Texas-sized mountain range buried beneath the ice sheets of East Antarctica. The project will perform a passive ...


2. Polenet East: An International Seismological Network for East Antarctica [NSF-ANT08-38973]
The high elevations of East Antarctica are critical in localizing the initial Cenozoic glaciation and stabilizing it with respect to melting during warm interglacials. However, the geological history ...


3. Rift Mechanisms and Thermal Regime of the Lithosphere across Beardmore Glacier Region, Central Transantarctic Mountains, from Magnetotelluric Measurements [NSF-ANT08-38914]
The investigators will examine competing hypotheses for the mechanism of extension and creation of the Transantarctic Mountains, and evolution of the thermal regimes of rifted West Antarctica and ...


4. A Planning Workshop for a McMurdo Dry Valleys Terrestrial Observation Network [NSF-ANT12-41487]
This award will support the participation of US scientists in an international planning workshop devoted to discussions of how to best facilitate and coordinate international efforts for terrestrial ...


5. Geochemistry and Petrologic Evolution of Felsic Volcanoes in Western Marie Byrd Land, Antarctica [NSF-ANT05-36526]
This project uses geochemical studies to determine the origin of volcanic rocks from Marie Byrd Land (MBL), Antarctica. Surprisingly, adjacent volcanoes in the MBL have dramatically different compositions, ...


6. 1990 PASSCAL/USGS/GSC Brooks Range Seismic Survey [PASSCAL_BROOKS2]
In the summer of 1990, the U.S. Geological Survey, Rice University and the Geological Survey of Canada conducted a seismic experiment across the Brooks Range, Alaska. The goal of the experiment ...


7. PASSCAL Assembled data set for Ouachita Experiment [OUACHITA_SEISMO_EXPT]
The 1986 Ouachita Lithospheric Seismology Experiment consisted of a 200 km seismic profile with 793 recording sites spaced approximately 250 m apart into which 29 shots were fired. The experiment ...


8. Crustal Scale Profiles and Their Interpretations in the Middle East and North Africa Regions [GEO_CORNELL_MENA_PROFS]
The Crustal profiles from the Middle East and North Africa show profiles of geologic, gravity and seismic data that were compiled into a database from which profiles across the region were selected ...


9. The Cornell Saudi Arabia Project: Crustal Studies in Saudi Arabia [GEO_CORNELL_SAUDIARABIA]
The main objectives of the Cornell Saudi Arabia research project are: (1) study the seismic attenuation characteristics of the crust (Lg) and uppermost mantle (Sn) of the Arabian lithospheric plate, ...


10. Iceland Hotspot [PASSCAL_ICELAND_HOTSPOT]
35 broad band sensors together with the mostly short-period SIL network record local and teleseismic events with the aim to image the plume and its interaction with the ridge system.


11. Lithoprobe Abitibi-Grenville geologic transect [PASSCAL_ABITIBI]
Abstract from Harvard Workshop on continental roots, Oct 10-13, 1997: Thermomechanical erosion of the continental lithosphere beneath the Precambrian Superior and Grenville provinces Canada relation ...


12. Western Superior Teleseismic Data [PASSCAL_TWIST]
This is a teleseismic study along the main N-S corridor of the LITHOPROBE Western Superior Transect. The objectives of the study are to determine the structure and physical properties of the subcrustal ...


13. Geochemistry of Rocks of the Oceans and Continents (GEOROC) [GEOROC]
