Transmitting data from under the earth's ice sheets

6 September 2011

The Cryo-egg project, a collaborative research project between the Centre for Communications Research, Mechanical Engineering, Geography and Earth Sciences, is developing a means of transmitting data from under the earth's ice sheets. As part of this project, Dr Ben Lishman and the University of Bristol team ran field experiments on the Greenland ice sheet during August 2011, looking at signal propagation from radio transmitters lowered into holes in the ice sheet.
