Research project:

The Southern Ocean is the most remote and the least understood of the world’s oceans, although it plays a crucial role in past and present climate state and changes. It is unique in being the only zonally unbounded ocean. For this reason, it is the major link by which water properties are exchanged among the other oceans. It is a region of large exchanges of heat, fresh-water, momentum and carbon between the ocean and the atmosphere.

SOCLIM is an ambitious project that combines cutting-edge research and innovative technology to explore the Antarctic ocean. Aiming to share the team’s objectives and some of its most exciting outcome, it adds as specific feature a science-based outreach component. This is in particular dedicated to a non-scientific audience and focuses on young people.
