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…
