With experts who are global leaders in their field, the ACE CRC is a reliable, independent and informed public voice on climate science.
An autumn voyage to the heart of an Antarctic polynya has rewarded expeditioners on a US icebreaker, including IMAS researcher Dr Guy Williams, with a glimpse of a rarely seen type of sea ice.
The sighting of “Dragon-skin” ice (see photos below) was an early highlight of an ongoing voyage to the Ross Sea by the Nathan B Palmer that began in early April, well after most Antarctic expeditioners have departed for warmer climes.Discover More
In late January 2017, Australia’s icebreaker, RSV Aurora Australis, returned to its home port of Hobart after a seven week marine science and resupply voyage to the Antarctic.Discover More
Australian research has confirmed that warm water flowing through a deep channel under East Antarctica’s largest glacier is driving rapid melting.
The research, published in Science Advances, sheds new light on the vulnerability of the East Antarctic ice sheet to ocean heat, which is one of the biggest unknown factors for global sea level rise projections.Discover More
Australian scientists are stepping up efforts to understand how the Southern Ocean is changing and how these changes are likely to affect the East Antarctic ice sheet.Discover More
Proposals to combat climate change by manipulating natural ocean processes will come under close scrutiny by climate scientists, legal experts and policy makers during a one-day symposium in Hobart today.
