Understanding Polar amplification is important to understand the future of the Arctic and Antarctic regions, but is also vital to predict the impacts on global climate. For example, observational studies support that Arctic amplification is contributing to winter cooling at lower latitudes but most models do not currently show this connection, leading to a divergence between model and observational studies. Further model development is vital to be able to understand the links between PA and mid latitude extreme weather and cooling, and the associated environmental and societal effects. Blue-Action, the European project SO-CHIC and EPB are co-organizing the upcoming session… Read More
Second SO-CHIC webinar: New frontiers in air-sea fluxes in the Southern Ocean – recording online
The second in a series of webinars for the EU-funded project Southern Ocean Carbon and Heat Impact on Climate (SO-CHIC). The webinar features speakers Seb Swart (University of Gothenburg, Sweden), Mario Hoppema (Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research, Bremerhaven, Germany) and Brian Ward (National University of Ireland, Galway) discussing air-sea fluxes in the Southern Ocean and research plans within the SO-CHIC project. https://youtu.be/Xne_elC29E4 Read More
Second SO-CHIC webinar
"EU project SO-CHIC: New frontiers of air-sea fluxes in the Southern Ocean" with Seb Swart from UGOT, Mario Hoppema from AWI and Brian Ward from NUIG. The second SO-CHIC webinar of the series will be held at 15:00 CEST on Thursday 8th October. This episode will focus on the WP1 of SO-CHIC, investigating annual cycle time series of high-resolution air-sea flux observations of heat, momentum and carbon dioxide. To join, please register here: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_k0Y5GkL6QYiEDy59boVmZw The webinar will be hosted by the EPB, with a recording made available afterwards on the SO-CHIC YouTube channel.

Paris, 15 November. All partners of the SO-CHIC project – Southern Ocean, Carbon and Heat Impact on Climate – met for the first time from 13 – 15 November 2019 in Paris, France, for the kick-off meeting of the project. In the focus: the main objectives, implementation plan and management behind SO-CHIC. Partners involved in SO-CHIC - Nov 2019 - Paris, France. “Our current lack of understanding of heat and carbon fluxes and storage in the Southern Ocean is strongly limiting our knowledge of earth energy budget and climate sensitivity. SO-CHIC attacks those issues to help reducing uncertainties in future… Read More
