Research from three Montana State University students has contributed to a broader understanding of the makeup of a large, ancient lake sealed off from the atmosphere for thousands of years under 2,600 feet of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet.

A recent National Science Foundation press released pulled together research from three institutions published in three scientific journals. The cumulative research provides the first look into the biogeochemisty, geophysics and geology of Subglacial Lake Whillans. The findings stem from the Whillans Ice Stream Subglacial Access Research Drilling (WISSARD) project funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
