Latest Taylor Glacier Stories
A team of scientists has recently developed a new technique, described in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, to confirm the age of a 120,000-year-old sample of Antarctic Ice.
Scientists have once again found cause to marvel at the brilliant tenacity of life.
U.S.-led scientists have found that an ecosystem below an Antarctic glacier has survived millions of years by using sulfur and iron compounds for growth. Co-led by Montana State University Professor John Priscu and Jill Mikucki of Dartmouth College, the scientists said the ecosystem lives without light or oxygen in a pool of brine trapped below Taylor Glacier, next to frozen Lake Bonney in eastern Antarctica. Priscu said the ecosystem contains a diversity of bacteria that thrive in cold,...
