Investigation of dynamics of glaciers of Argentine Islands archipelago using GPS for studying of climate changes on the Antarctic Peninsula

The geodesy survey of small island ice caps in Antarctic Peninsula region within the framework of the GIS project for the Argentine Islands archipelago has been started in 2002. The purpose of monitoring is the possible regional climate changes observation on shape, position, dynamics and future of archipelago small ice caps. The task was determined by the latest data of regional warming up to +5°C in the Faraday/Vernadsky area during the last century.
