Today we reach a big milestone, with our very first research voyage outbound for the Southern Ocean! Armed with a new fleet of bio-optical robots, our goal is to learn about how marine life acts as a 'handbrake' on global warming. #SOLACE2020 @IMASUTAS

Thankyou @ArcticNet fro all of us polar educators for a fantastic #AC2020 experience!

Thank you to #ASM3 organisers and ASM3 webinar series and Arctic People's panellists for a fascinating snapshot view of Arctic issues and Arctic Science @polareducators @_Arctic_Circle polareducators photo

ASM3 Webinar - Arctic Nations panellists speak about the importance of involving youth in Arctic Science and Arctic Science Ministerial process #ASM3 @polareducators

Interesting to hear about the collaborative roll of The Arctic Zone of the Russian Federation - a public council uniting to protect and support the health of peoples and their environment in the Russian Arctic from impacts such as the Norilsk disaster

“How much attitude can one penguin have? This image shows the story of a parade of 4-foot tall emperor penguins whose march back to their colony on the Ross Sea, Antarctica, was brought to a halt by a pair of gutsy Adélies. Once the little penguins had finished picking on the emperors, they decided to come over and challenge me. I probably insulted them by laughing out loud, but I couldn't help myself. All penguin species have different personality traits, and I would say Adélies are the most fearless” 🐧

There are two main elements to observe when assessing sea-level rise. One is the loss of the ice on land, e.g., melting mountain glaciers and inland ice sheets on Greenland and Antarctica, and the other is that the sea will expand as it gets warmer.
The more its temperature increases, the faster the sea will rise. Researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen have constructed a new method of quantifying just how fast the sea will react to warming. Their comparison of sea-level responsiveness in models with historical data shows that former predictions of sea level have been too conservative, so the sea will likely rise more and faster than previously believed. The result is now published in the European Geosciences Union journal Ocean Science.
