Program 3

PROGRAM 3 Sub-regional and Regional Antarctic Margins Program 3 will focus on understanding the response of the icesheet/climate system to climate change, for areas understood to be vulnerable to rapid deglaciation of the ice sheet. The Program will focus on the integration of studies that cover the spatial domains from ice sheet accumulation basins through […]

Program 2

PROGRAM 2 Regional East Antarctica and its Provinces The imprint of anthropogenic climate change on Antarctica and the Southern Ocean has so far revealed a pronounced asymmetry between West and East Antarctica, with distinct differences in air and sea-surface temperature as well as sea-ice changes, and ice shelf meltwater rates. P2 will focus on exploration of the […]

Program 1

PROGRAM 1 Circum Antarctic and East Antarctica Antarctica and the Southern Ocean play a disproportionately important role in modulating global sea level and Earth’s carbon cycle. Program 1 will focus on the large-scale drivers and small-scale processes that affect ocean and atmosphere circulation which modulate transport of heat and moisture to the Antarctic margin and […]

RESEARCH The Centre’s program of research is funded by $25M of ARC and university contributions. The research will formally commence in late 2021 and run for an initial period of four years. The focus is on high impact research on East Antarctica and the Southern Ocean-to build fundamental knowledge and research capacity, to train early […]

Stakeholder Engagement

STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT The Centre aspires to make significant contributions in four ways: Research impact: develop knowledge to help reduce the impact of unexpected developments and the passing of tipping points in East Antarctica and the adjacent Southern Ocean Establishing fundamental datasets and tools of international significance: revealing key processes, observations of state and change, and […]
