Radio Echo sounding measurements in polar areas and on alpine glaciers


Antarctica is a great historical file where are recorded all of more significant climatic events of the Earth.
The study of ice cores allows the most precise reconstructions of climatic sequences and of its variations. Moreover Antarctic glacier is one of the most sensitive point of the planet where could be notice possible climatic global changes early effects.
Antarctic glacier’s study allows a precocious diagnosis of acting global changes. Both superficial and deep well loggings, with radar surveys too, contribute to comprehension of the Antarctic ice sheet dynamics and evolution.

Recently the study and evolution of subglacial lakes gives further answers in the glaciology and exobiology fields. Another important subject is Antarctic glacier influence on the oceanic level increment by the mass balance evaluation.

Antarctica is the privileged site to study past climatic changes and the place where small global changes acting could anticipate other more considerable events.
