The Pine Island Glacier Expedition (image) New York University Caption The Pine Island Glacier expedition deployed multiple, unique sensor packages, developed by NPS Research Professor Tim Stanton, through 500 meters of solid ice to determine exactly how quickly warm water was melting the massive glacier from beneath. Pictured is the drill camp at the Pine Island Ice Shelf. The galley is on the left, hot water drill equipment in the center left, surface infrastructure tower mid right, and the seismic sled on the right.
