CASP-ROSSMAP are merging

Unified interpretation of geophysical data sets collected around Antarctica

CASP-ROSSMAP will integrate the various regional stratigraphies to achieve a unified circum-Antarctic seismic stratigraphic model that in turn can be linked to available rock sample record to determine ages, lithostratigraphies and paleoenvironments. This project will also help define potential future drill sites (SHALLDRILL/ANDRILL/IODP) at key locations around the Antarctic Margin
Through unified interpretation of geophysical data sets collected around Antarctica CASP-ROSSMAP addresses basic questions relating to the behaviour of Antarctic ice sheets and the geological evolution of the Antarctic margin including:
