Unit Affiliation: Ocean and Climate Physics, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO)
Lamont is responsible for the majority of the physical system work, including all aspects of the physical oceanography components, all aspects of the sea ice components, field program and data analysis, sea ice products analysis, and analyses of regional and hemispheric ocean-atmospheric-ice interactions based on observational and modeling studies.
OUTCOMES: Demonstrated that the Upper Circumpolar Deep Water unambiguously shows the warming of deep waters and is bringing heat to the West Antarctic Ice Sheet and this current is the primary mover of heat and nutrients onto the shelf. Findings submitted to Science and presented at LDEO Open House.
