Seismographic coverage of Antarctica prior to 2007 consisted overwhelmingly of a handful of long running and sporadically deployed transient stations, many of which were principally collocated with scientific research stations. Despite very cold temperatures, sunless winters, challenging logistics, and extreme storms, recent developments in polar instrumentation driven by new scientific objectives have opened up the entirety of Antarctica to year‐round and continuous seismological observation (e.g., Nyblade et al., 2012).

Motivations for these recent studies include improved understanding of seismogenic, volcanic, tectonic and glaciological processes, heat flow, dynamic glaciological/ocean interactions, and mantle viscosity. Such studies contribute generally to improvements...
