  Information - CL7 Antarctica and the Global Climate System (co-listed in AS, CR & OS)

Event Information
Antarctica and the Global Climate System (AGCS) is one of the five flagship Scientific Research Programmes of SCAR, devoted to the study of atmospheric and oceanic linkages between the climate of the Antarctica - Southern Ocean region and the rest of the Earth system. This session welcomes contributions on all aspects of this broad topic, with a particular focus on four major themes:

1) Decadal time scale variability in the Antarctic climate system, including ocean-atmosphere coupling and the role of ENSO in modulating Antarctic climate;

2) Global and regional climate signals in ice cores, and the establishment of relationships between ice core data and tropical, mid- and high-latitude climate variability;

3) Natural and anthropogenic forcing on the Antarctic climate system, including the estimation of climate change over Antarctica during the 21st century;

4) Export of Antarctic climate signals, with an emphasis on exploring how the ocean and atmosphere can convey signals of Antarctic climate change to northerly latitudes.
