Study of the exchange of carbonSouthern Ocean – Carbon and Heat Impact on Climate – Southern Ocean – Relationship between Acidification and Antarctic Ocean Warming on Climate between the atmosphere and the ocean

The Antarctic Ocean plays a key role in regulating the Earth’s climate: it is the largest area on Earth where air-ice-sea exchanges of substances and energy occur. These interactions are the focus of the H2020 project SO-CHIC, which is carrying out a never-before-done in-depth study of the effects of heat and CO2 storage processes on climate.

Through the integration of historical data, data acquired from satellites, new data acquired from Antarctic oceanographic campaigns, and new ultra-high resolution mathematical models, different scenarios are being studied and suggested actions to mitigate their possible impact. ETT is in charge of developing and managing the data management and presentation infrastructure, a delicate and crucial task for the success of the project.
