Ongoing scientific work

These studies are at different phases of progress, but have not yet reached manuscript stage:

1. Sea ice classification with SAR and digital imagery

2. Climate of Eastern Antarctica (jointly with Australia, France and Japan)

3. Formation of coastal polynyas as function of strong katabatic winds

4. New instrumentation the measure blowing snow

5. Mesoscale modeling of extreme katabatic wind events which occur in Adelie and King George Land (together with the French)

6. Absorption of light (including UV) in sea ice as function of the ice characteristics [crystal size, salt and air content, impurities, etc] (together with the Australians)

7. Global change in Antarctica

8. A new AWS station has been proposed to be placed on the iceberg B9B.
