Processes and Observations
The aim of this programme is to improve our understanding of the global climate system by observing processes in Antarctica, the Southern Ocean, and the atmosphere.
Understanding our Deep South
Antarctica, the Southern Ocean and the atmosphere above them are known to have a significant influence on the climate in the Southern Hemisphere. Understanding the processes in this part of the world will improve the ability to produce more accurate climate models and projections for New Zealand.
Deep South Challenge research will improve the quality of the New Zealand Earth System Model (NZESM)
