This ESA SO-ICE project is a collaborative research action bringing together the ESA Polar+ Ice Shelves and 4D Antarctica projects, and the European Commission (EC) Southern Ocean Carbon and Heat Impact on Climate (SO-CHIC) project, in order to improve understanding of the processes controlling ice-ocean interactions in the Antarctic region.
This will deliver a step-change in the understanding of how ice-ocean interaction is driving observed ice dynamic changes, and will ultimately improve the accuracy with which we can predict the future evolution of the Antarctic Ice Sheet.
Improved understanding of how ice-ocean interaction is driving observed ice dynamic changes in the Weddell Sea region.
