Meet the Experts: Ocean-Sniffing Airplanes and Climate Science around Antarctica
The remote Southern Ocean around Antarctica supports diverse ecosystems in harsh conditions, exchanges heat between our atmosphere and the deep ocean, and absorbs a large amount of industrial CO2 emissions. Despite its importance in our dynamic world, we know relatively little about the Southern Ocean and how it will respond to climate change. Scientists are working to shed light on this mystery using a special Gulfstream V research aircraft, which can tell us about the large-scale workings of biology and physics within the Southern Ocean. Join NCAR scientist Britt Stephens in this week’s “Meet the Experts” as he tells us stories and answers your questions live about his adventures flying around Antarctica in the name of climate science.
