IP015: Subglacial Antarctic Lake Environments (SALE) in the International Polar Year 2007-2008

Summary:

This paper summarizes the discussions, recommendations and conclusions of an international community of scientists and technologists with interest and expertise in subglacial Antarctic lake environments research and exploration. It does so in relation to the geodynamics of lake evolution, subglacial hydrology, limnology and biogeochemistry, microbiological life, evolution and adaptations, ice sheet dynamics, paleoclimate records, and global climate connections. The paper discusses the technological challenges associated with subglacial lake exploration and presents a vision for the future.
