An Assessment of the Oceanic Physical and Biogeochemical Components of CMIP5 and CMIP6 Models for the Ross Sea Region
Ownership: Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans
Summary: The physical and biogeochemical performance of 16 CMIP5 and 16 CMIP6 Earth System models (ESM) are examined relative to present day (1976–2005) observational data sets for a Ross Sea Region (RSR).
Soil environmental DNA metabarcoding in low-biomass regions requires protocol optimization: a case study in Antarctica
Summary: Calculating the basal mass change of twelve Antarctic ice tongues using a flux gate approach, deriving thickness from ICESat-2 height measurements and ice surface velocities from Sentinel-1 feature-tracking over the same period.
