Antarctic Expedition 2006-2007

Three researchers from the Arctic Centre took part in an expedition to Antarctica (FINNARP 2006) and they wrote here on their research and experiences there. Members of the Antarctic Expediton were:

* John Moore, Glaciologist-Paleoclimatologist
* Aslak Grinsted, Geophysicist
* Kristiina Virkkunen, Chemist.

Research was done on blue ice area that locates about 200 km from Aboa, the Finnish research station. Main goal of the expedition was to collect ~500 m long horizontal ice core for climate history studies. The ice samples were analyzed in Finland for ions. Also the dust content and electric conductivity of the ice using different methods, for example laser, were studied.

Dr. John Moore’s research publications are listed here.

The University of Lapland’s Arctic Centre is a research and science centre located near the Arctic Circle.
