The British Antarctic Survey has studied Brunt Ice Shelf in person since 1955. Scientists at their Halley Research Station study Earth, atmospheric, and space weather processes. Since 2012, the station has been made up of eight interlinked pods, built on skis so they can be moved, such as during the Antarctic summer of 2016–2017. Referred to as Halley VI Research Station, it was moved to the eastern side of Chasm 1.
The station is constantly on the move anyway, since the floating ice shelf flows at a rate of up to 2 km per year toward the west.
Images from Europe’s Copernicus Sentinel-2 satellites show the station’s previous location in 2016 and new location after that. Even at this satellite’s 10-m resolution in natural color images, the station consists of only a few pixels.
