Ocean Cryosphere Exchanges in ANtarctica: Impacts on Climate and the Earth system

Project description

Predicting the fate of Earth’s largest ice sheet

The largest block of ice on Earth, the Antarctic ice sheet, covers more than 14 million square kilometres. Its fate rests on how fast we can stop Earth from warming. Melting would cause a catastrophic sea level rise. The EU-funded OCEAN ICE project will improve assessments of the impact on the European climate from the melting ice sheets. It will develop a sheet-climate model that can be used to predict how changes in the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets impact global climate. On the basis of existing data, the project will formulate new estimates of ice sheet melt and the impact on ocean circulation.
