Tomorrow I am giving a talk on my field work on the Amundsen Glacier, Antarctica. My study addresses the limited record of deglaciation of the Antarctic ice sheet after the last ice age. How will Antarctica respond to current warming and sea level rise ? To understand its sensitivity to these factors we investigate the past.
Photo by @FransLanting // The annual gathering of king penguins on the beaches of South Georgia Island is one of the most phenomenal wildlife spectacles on the planet. It is an overwhelming sensation to spend time among them and they are a confirmation of the abundance of the Southern Ocean on which they depend. Fisheries around South Georgia are well-regulated, but beyond the territorial limits of the island, a lot of work remains to be done to safeguard a future for king penguins and all other wildlife dependent on the frigid seas surrounding Antarctica. Stay tuned for more stories and images.
