Life found beneath Antarctic ice sheet 'shouldn't be there'

Biologists say the inadvertent discovery of sea life on a boulder underneath an Antarctic ice shelf and hundreds of kilometres challenges our understanding of how far organisms can live from sunlight.
A British Antarctic Survey team drilled through the 900-metre-thick Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf and dropped a camera down the hole in search of mud on the seabed. To their surprise, the camera revealed a boulder ringed by animals. Video footage appear to show 16 sponges, accompanied by 22 unidentified animals which could include barnacles. It is the first time such immobile life has been found beneath an Antarctic ice sheet. “There’s all sorts of reasons they shouldn’t be there,” says Huw Griffiths at the British Antarctic Survey, who analysed the footage.

      What is referred to as “snow” is actually very fine particulates which sit on the bottom until some scientists come along with a camera and cause the water current to stir things up.

    • Whirled Publishing

      This "life" isn't all that "adaptive" - the problem is that the Antarctic sea waters are so unusually warm that creatures are coming in off the adjacent sea currents and deciding to stay.

      @Chris Palmer "Life found beneath Antarctic ice sheet 'shouldn't be there' - the sea creatures are there now because over the past several years, volcanic heat has been warming up the sea waters which rapidly melts the ice shelves - the unusually warm sea waters also attracts creatures from passing sea currents.

    This is really big news, since the underground sea under Antarctica has been isolated from the rest of the world for millions of years. The place is completely inhospitable and these complex life forms have been able to adapt and survive. This makes a visit to Jupiter's moon Europa even more exiting!

    • Whirled Publishing

      It's not isolated - sea currents from the South Pacific and South Atlantic flow along there - and those sea currents come from the equatorial Pacific and equatorial Atlantic..
