Newly combined high-resolution reconstructions of Antarctic palaeotopography and Southern Ocean palaeobathymetry for five time intervals between the Eocene–Oligocene boundary (ca. 34 Ma) and the present-day.

Newly combined high-resolution reconstructions of Antarctic palaeotopography and Southern Ocean palaeobathymetry for five time intervals between the Eocene–Oligocene boundary (ca. 34 Ma) and the present-day.

The grids were produced by merging separately published reconstructions of palaeotopography and palaeobathymetry from two recent studies (Paxman et al., 2019; Hochmuth et...

PAIS: The Sound of a Community Effort

“Every contribution matters.” Anybody who ever played in a sport team probably heard this sentence at some point. Actually, this is completely true also as far as science is concerned. Whereas in the collective imagination science is about big discoveries made by a single genius, the truth is that great science is made little by little, step by step. Science is a community effort in which every contribution matters. And that is the concept from which this video was born.

SCAR Scientific Research Programme PAIS

The SCAR Scientific Research Programme PAIS (Past Antarctic Ice Sheet dynamics) aims to improve understanding of the sensitivity of East, West, and Antarctic Peninsula Ice Sheets to a broad range of climatic and oceanic conditions.

PAIS builds on the success of SCAR-ACE (Antarctic Climate Evolution), but with a new focus on the ice sheet rather than palaeoclimate reconstructions. Study intervals span a range of timescales, including past "greenhouse" climates warmer than today, and times of more recent warming and ice sheet retreat during glacial terminations.
