Program 1

PROGRAM 1 Circum Antarctic and East Antarctic 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 […]

Program 2

PROGRAM 2 Regional East Antarctic 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 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 […]

How is a changing climate changing the water cycle?

How is a changing climate changing the water cycle? by A/Prof Jan Zika, ACEAS Chief Investigator We need to understand how climate change is affecting the long-term patterns of rainfall and evaporation on Earth. Our new study, led by Dr Taimoor Sohail, an Associate Investigator with ACEAS, outlines a way to track the water cycle by […]

Unravelling the moving mysteries of Antarctica

Scientists working near a rocky outcrop in Antarctica

Unravelling the moving mysteries of Antarctica Scientists are exploring a new method to uncover details of the changes occurring in the mysterious landscapes of East Antarctica—changes that will affect the lives of hundreds of millions of people across the planet. Researchers from the newly-formed ARC Australian Centre for Excellence in Antarctic Science (ACEAS), based at […]

Study exposes role of sea ice in protecting Antarctic coast

Study exposes role of sea ice in protecting Antarctic coast A new method for detecting and monitoring change in the exposure of the Antarctic coastline to the dynamic Southern Ocean, due to changing sea-ice distribution, could improve environmental monitoring and modelling of Antarctic ice loss and sea level rise. For the first time, Dr Phil […]

Scientific Advisory Panel

Scientific Advisory Panel The Scientific Advisory Panel’s role is to advise on the scientific program of ACEAS, including in identifying opportunities, threats and opportunities; making links with researchers and fieldwork programs overseas; and promoting the work of ACEAS to colleagues. Nathan Bindoff UTas About Nathan Nathan is one of the world’s leading climate scientists. As […]
