ANTarctic Sea Ice Evolution from a novel biological archive

Project description

New understanding of Antarctic sea ice controls and impacts

Antarctic sea ice is challenging to observe and to model, leading to low confidence in future projections in a warming climate. The EU-funded ANTSIE project will develop and evaluate new state-of-the-art simulations of the last glacial maximum (LGM) sea ice pack. To shed light on Antarctic sea ice controls and impacts, it will geochemically analyse a network of the preserved remains of regurgitated stomach contents (‘mumiyo’) from snow petrels that feed within and at the edges of the sea ice pack. The results will create a novel ecosystem perspective on the patterns and properties of sea ice during and since the LGM.
