Researchers doubt that fish can survive buried deep under Antarctic ice. 
Life on Land
What lives in Antarctica? Often the immediate answer is penguins, seals and krill, but these are part of the marine ecosystem, being entirely dependent on the ocean for their food. People do notExpand
The influence of Antarctic subglacial volcanism on the global iron cycle during the Last Glacial Maximum
Petrographic, geochemical and microbial DNA evidence preserved in precisely dated subglacial calcites from close to the East Antarctic Ice-Sheet margin suggest that volcanically-induced drainage of Fe-rich waters during the Last Glacial Maximum could have reached the Southern Ocean. Expand
The microstructure of polar ice. Part I: Highlights from ice core research
Polar ice sheets play a fundamental role in Earth's climate system, by interacting actively and passively with the environment. Active interactions include the creeping flow of ice and its effects onExpand


Subglacial Lake Vostok (Antarctica) Accretion Ice Contains a Diverse Set of Sequences from Aquatic, Marine and Sediment-Inhabiting Bacteria and Eukarya
Lake Vostok, the 7th largest (by volume) and 4th deepest lake on Earth, is covered by more than 3,700 m of ice, making it the largest subglacial lake known. The combination of cold, heat (fromExpand
