Presenter: Samantha Hansen, University of Alabama

Summary: Over the past decade, polar seismology in Antarctica has been 
advanced by a number of large-scale broadband seismic deployments, 
including the Transantarctic Mountains Seismic Experiment (TAMSEIS), the 
Gamburtsev Antarctic Mountains Seismic Experiment (GAMSEIS), and the 
Polar Earth Observing Network (POLENET). The logistics associated with 
working in such an extreme environment are quite challenging, but data 
from these different networks have greatly improved our knowledge about 
Antarctica’s geologic structure and tectonic development. This 
presentation will focus on the unique working conditions in Antarctica 
and will highlight results from a number of seismic investigations with 
contributions from collaborators at the Washington University in St. 
Louis, New Mexico Tech, and the Pennsylvania State University. Future 
directions for Antarctic seismology and details about upcoming field 
deployments will also be shared.
