Halley station: Rapid ice movement monitored under UK polar base

Still Waters

Recommended Posts

Scientists are closely watching the fast pace of a vast swathe of floating Antarctic ice that hosts a UK base.

The Halley station sits on the Brunt Ice Shelf, which has recorded an abrupt acceleration in recent months after calving giant icebergs.

There is no immediate concern the rest of the Brunt will break apart and doom the currently unoccupied base.

But British Antarctic Survey officials say greater stability must return before extended operations can resume.
