The Antarctic sub-glacial Lake Vostok: glaciology, biology and planetology / Igor A. Zotikov.

Title: The Antarctic sub-glacial Lake Vostok: glaciology, biology and planetology / Igor A. Zotikov.
Author(s): Zotikov, Igor A.
Date: 2006.
Publisher: Berlin: Springer ;
Abstract: Multi-disciplinary account of Lake Vostok, Antarctica. Topics include glaciology of central East Antarctic Ice Sheet, heat balance at bottom of ice sheet, critical thickness and bottom melting; radio echo sounding surveys, seismic determinations, satellite altimetry data and other surface evidence of sub-glacial lakes, and history of discovery of Lake Vostok; critical review of data on biological inclusions in Vostok ice core, ecology of Lake Vostok water and micro-organisms; applications to planetary studies and plans to penetrate ice cover of Europa and subglacial lakes beneath Martian ice; and comparative analysis of methods of penetrating ice sheet, with particular reference to possible contamination.
