Case Study – Optical Sensing Cables in Antarctica

Jubatus’ OFC partner recently deployed optical sensing cables through the McMurdo Ice Shelf and into the Ross Sea in Antarctica as part of a study to measure the effects of warming ocean water on glacial ice. The study by Dr. Scott Tyler of the University of Nevada, Reno, uses the latest in fibre optic sensing technology to acquire temperature profiles with 0.033°C accuracy through the ice shelf all the way to the bottom of the sea.
