Antarctic Permafrost and Soils (ANTPAS)
(IPY #33)
AIM:
”To collect and integrate existing and new data on the distribution,
thickness, age, history and physical and geochemical properties of permafrost,
soils and the active-layer on the Antarctic continent and sub-Antarctic islands.”
c.45 scientists in 15 countries
Integrates 8 Antarctic EOI’s
Active links to IPA TSP, IPA CALM, IPY DIS, SEDIFLUX, CAPP

Antarctic Permafrost and Soils (ANTPAS)
Integrate existing datasets and create a repository for new data
in a common, web-accessible, database system.
(EOI 125, IPY DIS EOI 49)
• Central database system - where? funding proposal for manager
• Data rescue
• Monitoring data to existing databases (CALM, NSIDC)
• Enforcement of IPY data policy

remote sensing/GIS/geophysical techniques.
Paleorecords of climate change in past and present
permafrost environments.
Deep borehole drilling, sampling and analyses in the
ice-free areas.

Objectives
• Integrate existing datasets and repository for new data in a common, web-accessible,
database system (EOI 125, NSIDC EOI 49).
• Produce a set of thematic maps on Antarctic permafrost and soils (EOI 191,228, 816).
• Monitoring network along regional environmental gradients (IPA EOI 125):
• Boreholes (GTN-P)
• Active-layer (CALM-S, EOI 439)
• Periglacial processes (link to SEDIFLUX EOI 816)
• Soils observations network (link to CAPP)
• Protocols/manual for data collection (and submission!)
• Develop dating techniques and search for the oldest permafrost on Earth
(ANTPAGE EOI 357).
• Utilize non-invasive imaging methods including remote sensing/GIS/geophysical
techniques.
• Paleorecords of climate change in past and present permafrost environments.
• Deep borehole drilling, sampling and analyses in the ice-free areas.
