Antarctic subglacial aquatic environments / Martin J. Siegert, Mahlon C. Kennicutt, Robert A. Bindschadler, eds.

Title: Antarctic subglacial aquatic environments / Martin J. Siegert, Mahlon C. Kennicutt, Robert A. Bindschadler, eds.
Author(s): Siegert, Martin J.,
Kennicutt, Mahlon C.,
Bindschadler, Robert A.,
Date: 2011.
Publisher: Washington, DC: American Geophysical Union
Abstract: Collection of 13 papers on history and background of subglacial aquatic environments and their future exploration, arising from AGU Chapman Conference on the Exploration and Study of Antarctic Subglacial Aquatic Environments held in Baltimore, MD, 15-17 March 2010. Main focus is on emerging scientific frontier and attendant environmental stewardship issues, and chapters include summaries of most recent identification, location and physiography of 387 subglacial lakes; detailed analysis of results from study of Lake Vostok; rationale for subglacial lakes as analogues for extraterrestrial environments; protocols for protection and stewardship of these unique environments; critiques of technological issues facing future exploration programmes; and summaries of three projects that will enter and sample subglacial aquatic environments in next three to five years.
