Antarctic Permafrost and Soils (ANTPAS)

(IPY #33)

AIM:

”To collect and integrate existing and new data on the distribution,

thickness, age, history and physical and geochemical properties of permafrost,

soils and the active-layer on the Antarctic continent and sub-Antarctic islands.”

c.45 scientists in 15 countries

Integrates 8 Antarctic EOI’s

Active links to IPA TSP, IPA CALM, IPY DIS, SEDIFLUX, CAPP

Antarctic Permafrost and Soils (ANTPAS)

  • Integrate existing datasets and create a repository for new data
  • in a common, web-accessible, database system.
  • (EOI 125, IPY DIS EOI 49)
    • Central database system - where? funding proposal for manager
    • Data rescue
    • Monitoring data to existing databases (CALM, NSIDC)
    • Enforcement of IPY data policy

  • Paleorecords of climate change in past and present
  • permafrost environments.
  • Deep borehole drilling, sampling and analyses in the
  • ice-free areas.

Objectives

  • Integrate existing datasets and repository for new data in a common, web-accessible,
  • database system (EOI 125, NSIDC EOI 49).
  • Produce a set of thematic maps on Antarctic permafrost and soils (EOI 191,228, 816).
  • Monitoring network along regional environmental gradients (IPA EOI 125):
    • Boreholes (GTN-P)
    • Active-layer (CALM-S, EOI 439)
    • Periglacial processes (link to SEDIFLUX EOI 816)
    • Soils observations network (link to CAPP)
    • Protocols/manual for data collection (and submission!)
  • Develop dating techniques and search for the oldest permafrost on Earth
  • (ANTPAGE EOI 357).
  • Utilize non-invasive imaging methods including remote sensing/GIS/geophysical
  • techniques.
  • Paleorecords of climate change in past and present permafrost environments.
  • Deep borehole drilling, sampling and analyses in the ice-free areas.
