|All day-Mar 2nd||Colloquium: 2012 Great Plains National Security Education Consortium NEBRASKA UNION|
As the Arab Spring demonstrated, new threats and unforeseen actors have driven a wide range of political change from violent conflict to peaceful democratic transition. The international community’s multilateral response also demonstrates that new actors will be involved in addressing security and conflict in the future. The central questions of this colloquium are: "How is human security driving conflict in the 21st century? What issues are likely to be most important? And how will responses differ from the past?" This conference seeks to discuss how and why human security concerns have displaced traditional security issues and assess how states have changed their approach to deal with these often diffuse, but important challenges.

The ANDRILL Coulman High Project Site Surveys were conducted from November 2010 through January 2011. A series of US-NZ field camps were established on the Ross Ice Shelf and the ANDRILL hot water drill system was used to melt numerous holes through 250-275 meters of ice.
Video camera observations of the interior and basal surface of the ice shelf and benthic observations of the seafloor were integrated with conductivity-temperature-depth measurements at each site. Oceanographic moorings comprised of inductive sensors were deployed at two sites. The Submersible Capable of under-Ice Navigation and Imaging underwater remotely operated vehicle was deployed and discovered an unusual biological community living in the lower surface of the ice.
Samples were recovered using an improvised suction pump sampler. Proposed future activities will permit extended dives to full water depth (>700 m) in the sub-ice cavity of the Ross Ice Shelf, to assist with ANDRILL Coulman High Project drilling and to enable potentially diverse interdisciplinary studies.
