DRRISWIV

The DRRISWIV project is a passive-source seismic experiment on the Ross Ice Shelf, West Antarctica. The Ross Ice Shelf is the biggest ice shelf in Antarctica. In November 2014 a team of scientist put up 36 seismometers all over the Ross Ice Shelf. The seismometers will record data for two years. Within this project we investigate the influence of ocean waves, especially that of ocean swell and infragravity waves, on the ice shelf.
