Southern Hemisphere Climate System Workshop :: May 2013


The Southern Hemisphere climate system displays uniquely strong coupling between atmosphere-ocean-ice dynamics. Furthermore, the region is a key player in regulating global biogeochemical cycles. This workshop brings together a small group of researchers to explore an interdisciplinary view of the Southern Hemisphere coupled system.
