Polar Oceans in a Changing Environment
Iceberg tracks around Ryder Bay, Adelaide Island, West Antarctic Peninsula from January 2013.  This bay is amongst the best studied around Antarctica, with daily meteorology, oceanography and ice conditions being measured for 2 decades.  Some of the ASCCC team will be studying the effect of icebergs, sea ice and glacier retreat in a new NERC CONICYT project in collaboration with Bangor University (UK) and Concepcion university (Chile).  The video shows  show how complex the paths, sizes and velocities of icebergs are even within a single bay.   Even with an iceberg scouring grid on the seabed monitored by divers, ground observers of sea ice conditions and remote sensing it will be difficult to predict where and how often iceberg grounding (scouring) occurs.  This is, however, very important to our goal of studying the conversion of seabed carbon from accumulation into immobilization into sequestration.
