cryobiology

The study of the effects of low temperatures on cells, tissues and organisms, including methods of using cold so as virtually to halt the processes of ageing and deterioration in living structures without causing serious damage. See also CRYOPRESERVATION.

cryobiology

the study of the effects of low temperatures on biological materials. Some tissues and cells remain viable when frozen and this makes it possible to preserve them for future use, particularly in the field of medicine e.g. sperm and tissue for grafting.

Deep Ice Coring Project currently being conducted in one of the snowiest regions of the West Antarctica Ice Sheet (WAIS) for studies of climate, ice sheet history and cryobiology. The multi-year WAIS Divide project is examining approximately the last 100,000 years of the Earth's climate history by drilling and recovering a deep ice core from the ice divide in central West Antarctica.
