The polar oceans are particularly vulnerable to ocean acidification; the lowering of seawater pH and carbonate mineral saturation states due to uptake of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2). High spatial variability in surface water pH and saturation states (Ω) for two biologically-important calcium carbonate minerals calcite and aragonite was observe...
Article
Life on Antarctica’s coastal seabed rollercoasters between food-rich, open-water, iceberg-scoured summers and food-sparse winters, when the sea surface freezes into ‘fast-ice’, locking up icebergs, reducing their seabed collisions (scouring). In the last half century, there have been massive losses of winter sea ice along the Antarctic Peninsula, a...

Project
This project focuses on three aims: (i) summertime CO2 uptake and ocean acidification related to meltwater, biological productivity and deep water inputs; (ii) CO2-carbonate chemistry in sea ice; (iii) seasonal and inter-annual cycles of oceanic CO2 in the Antarctic coastal zone.
