Mohammad Farzamian and John Triantafilis, Livingston Island, Antarctica
ANTERMON activities in 2020 are just starting, with the installation of a new A-ERT system in Livingston Island and EM and ERT surveys across the Island as well as maintenance of the A-ERT system in Deception Island, being conducted by 2 field teams.
- Livingston Island: Mohammad Farzamian (IDL/ULISBOA) and John Triantafilis (UNSW ) will install a new monitoring electrical resistivity meter (A-ERT), which was built at IDL this year, in Reina Sofia site and perform EM and ERT surveys across the Island.
- Deception Island: Miguel Esteves will do the maintenance of the existing A-ERT system as well as repeating ERT surveys to compare with observations one decade ago.
The A-ERT system built at IDL this year. A set-up with 26 electrodes and 0.5 m spacing. An explorer cases 5833B was used, casing the 4POINTLIGHT_10W instrument, solar panel-driven battery and multi-electrodes connectors during data acquisition. A timer was used this year to optimize the energy consumption by turning on the system at each six hours for ERT measurements.
