Is the climate crisis finally catching up with Antarctica? Finding the answer has never been more pressing

Andrew Meijers discusses the significant role of the Antarctic and Southern Ocean in the global climate in the context of climate change and historic lows of Antarctic sea ice. Projections of Antarctic melt’s contributions to sea level rise are still riddled with uncertainty. Andrew puts forth the need to increase our confidence and certainty in these projections through improving our understanding of ice and ocean processes and incorporating these into new and better models which the OCEAN:ICE project sets out to do.
