Abstract: This award supports a project to intensively study a subglacial Antarctic lake near the geographic South Pole using seismic and radar methods. Raw seismic data are archived at the IRIS DMC (Data Management Center) with keyword: POLELAKE and dataset ID: 10-019. Please reference Peters et al. when using these data.
