Glaciology research

Glaciological research. Group of scientists from the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) working on the sea ice next to the Royal Research Ship James Clark Ross. 90% of the worlds ice is located in the Antarctic and only 0.6% of the continent is free of ice. Sea ice (frozen sea water) is only a few metres thick but it insulates the sea and reduces heat transfer between ocean and atmosphere, keeping the air cold and dry. The extent of sea ice is critical to the climate of the Southern Ocean. Scientists measure the thickness and composition of sea ice and install tracking devices to map its progress through the Southern Ocean

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a group of dedicated scientists from the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) engaged in glaciological research on the vast sea ice next to the Royal Research Ship James Clark Ross. With a staggering 90% of the world's ice located in Antarctica, this frozen continent remains an integral focus for understanding our changing environment. The scientists diligently work amidst this icy expanse, driven by their quest to comprehend the delicate balance between ocean and atmosphere. Sea ice, although only a few meters thick, plays a crucial role in insulating the sea and reducing heat transfer. This insulation keeps the air cold and dry, making it vital for climate regulation in the Southern Ocean. In their pursuit of knowledge, these researchers meticulously measure both thickness and composition of sea ice while installing tracking devices to monitor its movements through these unforgiving waters. Their efforts contribute significantly towards mapping its progress and comprehending its impact on our planet's climate system. As we gaze upon this image captured by Science Photo Library, we are reminded of humanity's unwavering commitment to unraveling nature's mysteries. These passionate glaciologists exemplify how scientific exploration can shed light on Earth's most remote corners while fostering awareness about environmental preservation.
