Transantarctic Mountains Workshop

New Opportunities For Multidisciplinary Research

September 6, 2006 8:30 AM  to

Byrd Polar Research Center, Ohio State University

Save the Date

Since the International Geophysical Year, 1957-58, research in the Transantarctic Mountains south of Darwin Glacier has focused on bedrock geology and to a lesser extent glacial geology; opportunities, however, include biology, geophysics, glaciology, meteorology, surface processes and others. This workshop will highlight these opportunities, bring in disciplines not usually represented in Transantarctic Mountains research, and involve new investigators, as well as providing opportunities to initiate new inter-disciplinary research.

The objective is to develop a multi-year science plan for multidisciplinary research that can be accomplished with logistic support that will include LC-130 Hercules and Twin Otter aircraft and helicopter-supported remote field camps.

Those interested in attending should contact the conveners, and submit a detailed letter of interest, along with an abstract (not more than one page) for a short presentation. Contact: or, with a copy to

The Workshop Conveners anticipate that partial support will be provided for up to 35 participants by a grant from the Office of Polar Programs, National Science Foundation
