Investigating the polar regions from the inside out

POLENET is a global network dedicated to observing the polar regions in a changing world.

The project focuses on collecting GPS and seismic data from autonomous systems deployed at remote sites spanning much of the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets. GPS and seismic measurements together provide a means to answer critical questions about ice sheet behavior in a warming world.
