Antarctica 360 – Geology of the Transantarctic Mountains

We are a team of Geologists from the University of California, Santa Barbara, working on National Science Foundation supported research in Antarctica. We are heading to the Southern Dry Valleys region, near McMurdo Station to conduct fieldwork 7 weeks fieldwork beginning in October 2015. We will follow our fieldwork up with detailed lab analyses to better understand the geologic evolution of the Transantarctic Mountains.

We’ll update this site with text, photos, videos and audio from the field as well as information on our research findings. Please look around and contact us if you have any questions or comments.

Finally, a big thank you to Duncan Shea for helping create this site!
