The next SO-CHIC webinar "Upper ocean ventilation pathways" is coming! It will take place on 12th January 2024 at 15:00 CET (14:00 GMT) online. You can now register for the webinar here.
During the event the Work Package 2 will be the main topic. This WP seeks to determine the lead rate-controlling processes of ventilation in a region of up welling of warm deep waters in the Southern Ocean. It brings together observers and modelers to address one of the key sources of uncertainty in current predictions of the future climate state, namely the rate of uptake of heat and carbon into the Southern Ocean interior and the mechanisms that drive this sequestration.
This webinar will feature talks by four of WP2's researchers explaining WP2's goals, the current research being conducted, and recent results.
The webinar is hosted and coordinated by the European Polar Board, in conjunction with WP2 leads, Dr. Alexander Brearley of the British Antarctic Survey and Prof. David Marshall of the University of Oxford.
A recording of the webinar will be publicly available on the SO-CHIC YouTube channel afterwards: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1HVuRRD-fI&list=PL35-jVsHcT4CwS9M-Pucs18NUpvCIfuls
