The SO-CHIC project is a European Union Horizon 2020-funded project exploring the processes influencing heat and carbon exchange between the Southern Ocean and the atmosphere. Work Package 2 will seek to determine the lead rate-controlling processes of ventilation in a region of up welling of warm deep waters in the Southern Ocean. This work package will bring 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 take place on January 12 – 3 p.m. – and 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.
