Ocean dynamics played key role in Antarctic sea ice changes during past decades
AOML Oceanographer Sang-Ki Lee and his colleagues used an ocean and sea-ice coupled model to show that ocean dynamics played key role in Antarctica's sea ice changes during past decades. This research* was selected as an Editor's highlight for the Journal of Geophysical Research.


Wind-driven ocean influences on the contrasting sea-ice trends around West Antarctica.
Advances in the applications of surface drifters.
Contrasting patterns of phytoplankton pigments and chemotaxonomic groups along 30°S in the subtropical South Atlantic.
A meridional dipole in pre-monsoon Bay of Bengal tropical cyclone activity induced by ENSO.
An improved surface velocity climatology for the global ocean from drifter observations.
