Press Release: Has Antarctic sea ice expansion been overestimated?
New research suggests that Antarctic sea ice may not be expanding as fast as previously thought. A team of scientists say much of the increase measured for Southern Hemisphere sea ice could be due to a processing error in the satellite data. View News Article (2014-07-22)

Cold water gets mixed in 'blender' of Scotia Sea
The Scotia Sea, located between the Antarctic and the tip of South America, acts like a 'blender' on the very cold ocean waters that influence global ocean circulation patterns and ultimately climate, according to new research from the University of East Anglia (UEA) and published today (28 February) in the international journal Nature. The research, carried out by Dr Karen Heywood, Dr David... View News Article (2002-02-25)

Algorithm finds missing phytoplankton in Southern Ocean
NASA satellites may have missed more than 50% of the phytoplankton in the Southern Ocean, making it far more difficult to estimate the carbon capture potential of this vast area of sea. View News Article (2013-09-18)
