WP1: Air-Sea fluxes

This work package focuses on: Interaction of the Southern Ocean with the atmosphere. What controls the exchange of heat and carbon across the air-sea-ice interface, and how well are these exchanges constrained by observations and reproduced by models? The focus…

WP2: Surface layer to ocean interior

This work package focuses on: Exchange between the upper-ocean mixed layer and the interior. What are the leading-order processes that control the rate at which heat and carbon enter the Southern Ocean interior in its different layers, and how will…

WP3: Basin-scale transports

This work package focuses on: Exchange between the Southern Ocean and the global ocean. What are the size, variability and controls on basin-scale heat and carbon transports throughout the Atlantic sector of the Southern Ocean and outwards to the global…

ORCHESTRA WP2 meeting report

On the 4th of March the ORCHESTRA WP2 meeting was held at BAS. WP2 focuses on the processes that exchange heat between the ocean mixed layer and interior. Despite travel restrictions on many participants there was an active group of…

Webinar – SO-CHIC: Southern Ocean Carbon and Heat Impact on Climate

The EPB will host the first in a series of webinars for the project Southern Ocean Carbon and Heat Impact on Climate (SO-CHIC) on 15:00 CEST, Tuesday 7th April 2020. This first webinar, given by project coordinator Jean-Baptiste Sallée from Sorbonne Université, will introduce…

Physical Oceanographer vacancy

Description The British Antarctic Survey is inviting applications for an observational physical oceanographer with a track record of interpreting and analysing observational polar oceanographic datasets. The successful candidate will use observational datasets and numerical model output to construct and test…

About Orchestra

Climate change is one of the most urgent issues facing humanity and life on Earth. Whilst our everyday understanding of climate concerns the warmth of the atmosphere, the ocean is critical in controlling how our planet’s climate changes. This is…
