Does extraterrestrial life exist on Mars or the icy moon Europa? Much of our solar system and planet are covered by gigantic ice sheets, but most of us have no idea about what’s going on inside of this bizarre winter world. Join our team of visiting scientists from all around the world to learn about their facilitating Antarctic research of ice sheets, microbial life, glaciers, and the effects of climate change. Stock up on fresh science and check out one of El Paso’s newest beer and burger joints. The TIME group studies the role of shear margin dynamics in the future evolution of Thwaites Drainage Basin. TIME is an ice-based project using state-of-the-art geophysical techniques to observe rapidly deforming parts of Thwaites Glacier (shear margins) which may have significant control over future stability of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS). The TIME project will observe rapidly deforming parts of Thwaites Glacier which may have significant control over the future evolution of WAIS, and use these new observations to improve ice sheet models used to predict future sea level rise.
