antarctica and the global climate system agcs
Antarctica and the Global Climate System (AGCS)

USE:

  • Ice cores, satellite data, global and regional climate models and meteorological and oceanic data

TO ASSESS:

  • The role of ocean-atmosphere coupling and ENSO in Antarctic climate
  • Recent climate variability
  • Future regional climate change for the next 100 years
  • The influence of Antarctic climate change on conditions elsewhere

Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research

agcs in the ipy 2007 2008
AGCS In the IPY 2007-2008
  • Test Models and High Latitude Climate Signal Transfer Functions
  • Carry-out Bi-polar Shallow Ice Drilling Program

Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research

antarctic climate evolution ace
Antarctic Climate Evolution (ACE)
  • Study climate change and glacial history;
  • Model paleo-climate changes and predict future change
  • Improve coupled ice sheet/climate/ocean/sediment models
  • Study heat and freshwater exchanges via polar ocean gateways.
