This may be of interest...
Palmer station Antarctica is showing relative quiet today after recording two Mag 5+ quakes in the polar Atlantic, not far from Antarctica.
NONE of the previous drilling signature is noted (although I admit I have not had time to monitor this situation, and am not sure when it ceased).
It is my personal opinion, based on the previously observed seismic signatures that whoever was tunnelling had already penetrated the ice cap, and was
indeed in the underlying bedrock, as the seismic signature indicated drilling through alternating layers of hard and soft rock.
Also of interest is that just this week, USGS added two additional seismic monitoring stations in Antarctica. Such a station indicates a very
significant outlay of resources... wonder where the funding came from, and what the justification for that funding was????
