AKlepikov- SOP and SOOS

Description

The main outcomes of the 7th Meeting of the CLIVAR/CliC/SCAR Southern Ocean Region Panel (Boulder, USA, 19 – 21 October 2011) were presented. The meeting focused on three different themes: Southern Ocean carbon; atmospheric processes over the Southern Ocean; and Southern Ocean physics. The overarching aim was to provide a forum to generate an overview of current understanding in these three main areas.

The agenda of the upcoming 8th Session of SOP (Hobart, Australia, 21 – 22 February 2013) was discussed. This meeting will be held immediately after the Working Group on Ocean Model Development (WGOMD)/SOP Workshop on Sea Level Rise, Ocean/Ice Shelf Interactions and Ice Sheets. The WGOMD is responsible for stimulating ocean model development, along with promoting interaction amongst the ocean modeling community and between this and other climate related research communities. The workshop objectives are: (i) evaluation of state-of-science of ocean and land-ice interactions, (ii) identify priorities for reducing uncertainties in the projections of global and regional sea-level rise, and (iii) investigate pathways for the development of the next generation of climate models incorporating interactive land-ice components.

The results of the Southern Ocean Observing System (SOOS) Seeing Below the Ice Workshop (Hobart, Australia, 22-25 October 2012) were presented. The workshop gave scientists the opportunity to present the current status of polar observing systems in both hemispheres, discuss key questions, define problems and recommend the solutions required to develop a sustained strategy for observations in the Southern Ocean sea ice zone. A plan had been developed by the end of the workshop to outline the measurements needed, how to collect them and from where, in the sea ice zone to study ocean - ice interactions. A strategy to observe ocean structure and circulation and ice-ocean interactions in the Antarctic sea ice zone will be developed in upcoming months.

Presented by Alexander Klepikov, Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute, at the 9th CliC Scientific Steering Group meeting in Potsdam, Germany 2013.
