Title: Geomicrobiology of Vostok Ice: Implications for Life in Lake Vostok
Url: http://www.montana.edu/lkbonney/DOCS/Vostok%20summary.htm
Creator: Priscu, John
Publisher: Montana State University
Description: This abstract introduces newly discovered microbe assemblages within Lake Vostok and the research it has inspired. Current studies hope to gain insight into the following areas: physical stresses in deep glacial and accretion ice; the role of clathrates on gas dynamics within the lake; the origin of microbes in accretion ice; the physiological state of ice-bound microbes; the geochemistry of the ice column; and living microbes in ice veins that form at triple junctions in the ice crystal matrix.
