Bouncing Continents: Insights into the Physics of the Polar Regions of the Earth from the POLENET Project in the International Polar Year
Reading, Anya M.
Physics Education, v43 n4 p383-391 Jul 2008
When ice sheets melt, and reduce the load on the surface of the Earth, the land areas beneath them bounce back up. New, accurate observations are needed to investigate this uplift and its implications effectively. This article provides a topical starting point for investigating some applications of physics applied to the polar regions of the Earth, and interaction between the solid Earth, ice and oceans. (Contains 8 figures.)
