Voyage to an Antarctic polynya sights rare “dragon skin” ice
9 May 2017

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.

Ocean heat melting Totten Glacier from below
19 December 2016

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.
