RU3: Ice sheets and the oceans

Most water from melting ice sheets will eventually end up in the sea, but it is unclear how this will affect the oceans and the many life forms that inhabit them.

To answer this question, we are conducting research in coastal areas, on icebergs and in the seas across Svalbard, Greenland and Antarctica, using drones, ice drills, ships, and submarines to gather data. We are assessing and modelling the impacts of nutrients, methane and carbon borne by glacial meltwaters on ocean carbon stores and ecosystems.

Our aim is to drive major breakthroughs in the understanding of ice sheet impacts on ocean carbon cycles and ecosystems.
