Seals solve Antarctic water mystery
24 August 2016

Elephant seals have helped scientists to demonstrate that fresh water from Antarctica’s melting ice shelves slows the processes responsible for the formation of deep-water ocean currents that regulate global temperatures.

The study, led by Dr Guy Williams from the Institute of Marine and Antarctic Studies and Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems CRC, is published today in Nature Communications.

Antarctic ice cores reveal risks for water supply
11 May 2016

In a world first, Australian scientists have used Antarctic ice core samples to reconstruct rainfall records for a specific water catchment.

The research identifies areas in Eastern Australia where Antarctic ice core data, while collected thousands of kilometres away, can provide proxy climate records for Australia for the last 1000 years.
