[Press Release] Breakup of land-fast sea ice in East Antarctica and its teleconnection to tropical Pacific sea-surface temperatures

Assoc. Prof. Shigeru Aoki (Division of Earth System Science) investigated breakups of land-fast sea ice in Lützow-Holm Bay, East Antarctica using satellite imaging data. He found its teleconnection to tropical Pacific sea-surface temperatures. This study offers hope for future predictions of ice behavior to merit the logistics to Antarctic research stations.

This research outcome is published in Geophysical Research Letters.
