Title: Future science opportunities in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean / United States. Committee on Future Science Opportunities in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean, United States. Polar Research Board, United States. Division of Earth and Life Studies, United States. National Research Council of the National Academies.
Author (corporate): United States.
Date: 2011.
Publisher: Washington, DC: National Academies Press
Abstract: Identifies significant areas of future research in Antarctica and Southern Ocean that merit funding and logistic support. Identifies two themes: global change, and fundamental discovery. Global change topics include Antarctic and Southern Ocean contribution to changes in sea level, role in global climate system, impact of climate change on Antarctic biota and ecosystems, and Antarctica's geological past. Fundamental research topics include role of Antarctica and Southern Ocean in past climate, life adaptations to extreme conditions, and use of Antarctic platform for "space weather" studies and cosmology. Discusses collaborations, infrastructure and education necessary to support future Antarctic research and ways to enhance these.
