Small window of opportunity left to preserve Antarctica’s ‘sleeping giant’

Small window of opportunity left to preserve Antarctica’s ‘sleeping giant’ A new study suggests the worst effects of global warming on Earth’s largest ice sheet can be avoided if the world meets the climate targets outlined in the Paris Agreement—but if we fail, then the melting of the ice sheet will have a drastic impact […]

Southern Ocean takes on the heat of climate change

Southern Ocean takes on the heat of climate change Of all the oceans on Earth, the Southern Ocean does the lion’s share at slowing the pace of climate change by absorbing most of the excess heat trapped in the planet’s atmosphere, say scientists from the ARC Centre for Excellence in Antarctic Science (ACEAS) at UNSW […]

Vacancies

VACANCIES Research Associate – Paleoclimate and Paleoglaciology Program 3 I UNSW The Research Associate will contribute to collaborative research into the East Antarctic Ice Sheet and Atmospheric Interactions. The Research Associate will be engaged on a reconstruction of past millennial Antarctic surface katabatic and coastal winds; the assimilation of the reconstruction into proxy-modelling of paleo-precipitation, […]

Ocean warming and sea-level rise are on a fast track 

Ocean warming and sea-level rise are on a fast track  The results of the study are based on many thousands of measurements taken from across the globe—including from the Southern Ocean, which warms at a much faster rate than the Pacific and Indian Oceans.
