Thwaites ‘Field-Science Spotlights'


Our "Antarctic Field Update" education series helps keep you and your students informed about project research in the Amundsen Sea, Antarctica, from our scientists onboard the Research Vessel Nathaniel B. Palmer as they study ocean characteristics near the Thwaites Glacier.

These spotlights are associated with reports from the research, found at our Snow on Ice page.

Antarctic Field Spotlight #1: How are our scientists measuring ocean temperature under Thwaites Glacier, Antarctica?

Antarctic Field Spotlight #2: Hugin, "The Brave Little Submersible," explores under Thwaites Glacier, Antarctica

Antarctic Field Spotlight #3: How can penguin bones & sea shells tell us about past sea level?
