Antratica New Zealand

New Zealand Government


The POLENET consortium’s science programme will investigate polar geodynamics, the earth’s magnetic field, crust, mantle and core structure and dynamics, and systems-scale interactions of the solid earth, the cryosphere, the oceans and the atmosphere. Activities will be focused on deployment of autonomous observatories at remote sites on the continents and offshore, coordinated with measurements made at permanent station observatories and by satellite campaigns. GPS data from this project will also contribute towards extending the Ross Sea Geodetic Datum 2000 and can be used for mapping and other projects. Land Information New Zealand will contribute to POLENET.
