Antarctic Ocean Water Masses

High-resolution simulation of global climate physics enables us to model how the climate may change under a variety of future scenarios. Such simulations produce vast amounts of information and dense datasets. If interrogated in tandem, these datasets can provide holistic, vital information on Earth’s many integrated systems by revealing the manifold interrelated properties of the atmosphere, ocean, and polar ice, framed by real-world terrain in three-dimensional space as they vary over time. To accomplish this, climate scientists have joined with computer scientists and an artist to develop techniques enabling scientists to see these relationships. The impact of ocean water properties on Antarctic ice shelves illustrates the benefit of this analysis in understanding land ice melt rates and thus sea-level rise.

The First Water in the Universe

As much as half of the water in the solar system is thought to predate the Sun (Cleeves et al. 2014), which points to an ancient heritage for this substance. How, where and when water appears in the universe and with what frequency have never been answered from first principle calculations. Learn more.

PERMAFROST: Connecting Observations to Models

Rising temperatures are rapidly thawing Arctic permafrost. As it thaws, permafrost releases carbon that will eventually impact ocean currents. Permafrost: Connecting Observations to Models is a multi-faceted look at permafrost research in the Arctic. Learn more.

Climate Prisms: The Arctic

Climate Prism: The Arctic is an artistic journey through the science of climate change, specifically Arctic research from the national labs. It is an experimental interactive presentation designed to engage users via their own curiosity and human connection at a self-driven pace through a self-selected, multi-branching, wide range of content presentations.
