Abstract

The subglacial Antarctic Ice Sheet is one of the lesser known and most inaccessible places for direct sampling. This work, conducted under the Italian Program for Antarctic Research (PNRA), aims to use results of multicomponent analyses and observations on ice proximal marine sediment cores (Ross Sea, Glomar Challenger Area) as the key data set to introduce the first general sedimentary model (s) into an Astrobiology Roadmap scientific scheme, ie: Goals 5 and 8. Information obtained from Antarctic ...
