Antarctic Oceans – both a destroyer and creator of ice

Date: 14 Nov 2018 - 14 Nov 2018
Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Room WZ137,

If you are in Auckland on November 14, please join us and the Auckland Antarctic Science MeetUp Group for a presentation by Craig on the influence of the oceans on Antarctic ice.

In this talk Craig describes recent work looking at the opposing roles the ocean plays in the life cycle of Antarctic ice. The giant ice sheets feed the coastal ice shelves and going beyond we encounter sea ice manufactured by the literally freezing winds blowing off the southern continent. The warming ocean plays a role in the life cycle for all of this ice – flowing beneath ice shelves and seeping under ice sheets as well as interacting with wind to make new sea ice. Hence, we find ice melting in some places and growing in others – but all of it connected by the oceans.
