The application of both active and passive seismic methods in Antarctica has improved our understanding of a range of cryospheric processes, properties and features, informing and improving models of ice stream and ice sheet evolution. Here we present some recent results and current projects outlining the range of scientific questions which seismology can address, including: ice shelf cavity bathymetry for improved oceanographic modelling; ice stream basal properties to understand flow regimes; microseismicity and its relationship to basal processes; ice rise grounding properties and ice sheet history; solid earth structure for improved GIA modelling.
