Third 'IMOS in MOcean' video – What do changes in the Southern Ocean mean for the Antarctic ice sheet?
The 3rd video in the 'IMOS in MOcean' series examines evidence that a warming Southern Ocean is contributing to Antarctic ice sheet melting.
The 2nd video in the 'IMOS in MOcean' series examines carbon and heat transfer between ocean and atmosphere.
The current monster El Niño weather pattern being experienced in Australia is being referred to as the ‘Godzilla’ El Niño. Climatologists are looking at ocean data to try to predict what happens once this phenomenon passes.
