The borehole installed in 2019 in Barton Peninsula has also provided the first full year data series, feeding directly into the masters thesis of Joana Baptista, working on spatial modelling of ground temperature.
As an highlight, the ANTARMON team lead by Mohammad Farzamian has got a full year-long data set from the resistivimeter installed in Deception Island and installed a new one in Livingston Island. This is an important upgrade to the PERMANTAR network, which will be including resistivimeters at the key boreholes for monitoring permafrost degradation and changes in ice content of the ground.
It is now time to work the new data.
This campaign would not have been possible without the funding of the Portuguese Polar Program (FCT) and the logistical support of the Spanish Polar Program, the Korean Polar Research Institute, the Chilean Antarctic Institute, the Argentinean Antarctic Institute and the National Science Foundation. Thank you very much!
