New paper published in Nature

Summertime increases in upper-ocean stratification and mixed-layer depthJean-Baptiste Sallée, Violaine Pellichero, Camille Akhoudas, Etienne Pauthenet, Lucie Vignes, Sunke Schmidtko, Alberto Naveira Garabato, Peter Sutherland & Mikael Kuusela In a paper published in Nature recently, the authors collected a maximum number of ocean observations made from ships, floats, and marine mammal to show that the ocean is changing drastically, faster than previously estimated. Jean-Baptiste Sallée, main author gives us details : In current climate change, we expect that the upper ocean surface ocean decouples from the deep-seas, making it harder for the ocean to play its role of climate regulator. It… Read More

EPB' 25th Anniversary

In celebration of the EPB’s 25th Anniversary, a session will be held as part of the ASSW2021 conference titled “Europe in International Polar Research – 25 years of Arctic and Antarctic cooperation with the EPB”.

– PhD opportunity within MSCA-ITN DEEPICE

The DEEPICE project (Research and training network on understanding Deep icE corE Proxies to Infer past antarctiC climatE dynamics), funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions - Innovative Training Network) calls for applications for 15 fully funded PhD positions (early-stage researcher, ESR) to be filled between July and October 2021, with attractive complementary training activities and associated research and travel budgets. DEEPICE aims to train a new generation of scientists working on issues related to past climate change in Antarctica by taking advantage of the unique scientific dynamic of the on-going EU H2020 "Beyond… Read More

Interesting paper from Matthis Auger et al. (2021)

Auger M., Morrow R., Kestenare E., Sallée J.-B., Cowley R., 2021 - Southern Ocean in-situ temperature trends over 25 years emerge from interannual variability, Nat Commun 12, 514 (2021). The paper has been cited in an Washington Post article, dedicated to the Southern Ocean and its warming waters. In this article, Matthis highlights the fact that "we cannot predict if the situation will be the same as in West Antarctica all around the continent in the future, but we are now observing changes going into that direction". “This study shows the threat of subsurface water warming, that can affect Antarctic… Read More

Invitation to take part to EU-PolarNet 2 online survey on stake- and rightholder engagement conducted in European Polar research projects

The European Polar Board invite European Polar research projects to take part to this online survey on on-going and planned stakeholder and rightholder engagement in European Polar Research (Arctic and Antarctic). The survey  is open until February 28th, 2021.  This survey is an integral part of the EU-PolarNet 2 project and aims to support an effective stakeholder engagement process feeding into the prioritisation of European Polar research. A second aim is to increase cooperation between the Polar research projects in the EU Polar Cluster coordinated by EU-PolarNet 2, but we hope to expand our cooperation beyond this cluster as well.   Direct link to… Read More

participation to the Climate Science2Policy workshop

Efficient and timely collaboration between the scientific community and policy makers is crucial in mitigation and adaptation efforts related to climate change we are facing. Scientific findings in the field of climate science are an integral part of policy-making and it is of utmost importance to boost and maintain exchange of knowledge and needs between researchers and policy-makers on a regular basis. The Climate Science2Policy (CS2P) workshop, organised by the European Commission last 17-18 November was to bring together Earth System Science H2020 projects and policy makers to identify and discuss key policy-relevant messages and research requirements to achieve the… Read More

December 2020 - The Forum organized virtually, provide a platform for a diverse audience, ranging from policy makers, research leaders and academics to civil society representatives, entrepreneurs and the youth, to engage in inspirational topics relating to the Atlantic Ocean. The Forum showcased the progress of initiatives to support the implementation of the Belém and Galway statements. These initiatives are aligned with the relevant blueprints of the All-Atlantic partners, such as South Africa's Operation Phakisa Oceans Economy, the European Union's Blue Growth Strategy, the Brazilian Blue Economy, Canada's Ocean Strategy, as well as the relevant policies and strategies of the… Read More

contribution to the 2020 European Polar Science Week

The European Polar Science Week is one of the first results of the increased cooperation between the European Commission (Directorate General for Research and Innovation) and the European Space Agency (ESA) are working together to improve cooperation and to identify the grand science challenges in Polar research that may drive joint EC-ESA scientific activities in the coming years. It took place on-line during October 26-30 2020. During this week, key scientists and stakeholders of Polar Science will have the opportunity discuss the major challenges and opportunities in front of us, promote networking and collaboration across projects and activities and support… Read More

at the "Designing Ocean Literacy action in Europe" workshop

On 25 September 2020, the European Ocean Coalition (EU4Ocean) workshop “Designing Ocean Literacy action in Europe” built momentum for collective actions and knowledge sharing. Attendants had the opportunity to share ideas with other Ocean Literacy enthusiasts, experts, and people interested in ocean issues. SO-CHIC participated to this workshop, along with other European projects to interact on collective actions on three priority themes: Climate and Ocean, Food from the Ocean, and Healthy and Clean Ocean. You can download the summary and the synthesis of the workshops here: 1 page summary of the EU4Ocean thematic workshops (25/09/20)4 page synthesis of the ideas gathered… Read More
