Carbon Cycling in the Ross Sea

Carbon Cycling in the Ross Sea

How does carbon cycle in Antarctica’s Ross Sea? How will carbon cycles be effected by climate change? Those are some of the questions that Baliga Lab scientists on this project are trying to answer.

The project image is Cape Washington in Antarctica. You can see Katabatic winds blowing more than 80mph over the cliffs and the slush ice has formed on the top layer of the -1.9 C sea. Penguins use the slush ice to toboggan around (tiny black dots in distance).
