We will use this information to attempt to predict their future behaviour. I will be a visiting SCAR Fellow for 5 …
Dr Tom Bracegirdle from the British Antarctic Survey presented a plenary at the 2012 SCAR-OSC, where he showed us his projections for climate change and sea level rise over the next 100 years from his modelling experiments.
Professor Jane Francis from Leeds University gave a talk at the SCAR 2012 Open Science Conference on sea ice during the Cretaceous period.
The Scientific Committee of Antarctic Research Open Science Conference (SCAR-OSC) for 2012 is now over. Read on below for my summary and thoughts of the conference.
Busy day at the ISMASS Workshop here at SCAR 2012 (see here: ISMASS website). There were invited lectures from a number of prominent scientists, including Erik Ivins, Pippa Whitehouse, Jay Zwally, Catherine Ritz, Slawek Tulaczyk, Catia Domingues, and Robert Nicholls. For me, two talks stood out as exceptional.
