Antarctic Climate Change and the Environment published

The SCAR Antarctic Climate Change and the Environment report was published yesterday. It provides a very comprehensive picture of the current knowledge about the state of the Antarctic, priorities for research and questions that need to be answered in the future. Readers here may be interested in the review of satellite observations used to monitor the Antarctic provided in Chapter 2 – “Observations, Data Accuracy & Tools”.


The full report is available here, but a more digestible summary of the 10 key points is provided at the bottom of the British Antarctic Survey press release here. There’s plenty of other coverage on BBC, New Scientist etc.
