World Antarctic Day, December 1st- 2017 was celebrated by a huge Marine Protected Area in the Ross Sea coming into force. As the head of International Greenpeace Antarctic Campaign Frida Begtsson said "Healthy oceans take in vast quantities of CO2 and are essential in tackling climate change" Tonight BZE radio goes to the cryosphere where you will meet scientists and sustainability leaders we can be proud of. You will hear about Katabatic winds,krill, ice cores that show Australian droughts centuries ago and ocean circulation that controls the climate. After visiting the replica of Mawson’s hut in Hobart, Vivien went past a sculpture of Roald Amundsen and into the epicentre of Antarctic research ACE CRC. It’s near Salamanca Place. Dr Jan Leiser is a marine glaciologist. His satellite technology helps him advise ships as the summer seasonstarts.. Sea Ice is his speciality as it expands and contracts every year. It doesn’t affect sea level but its great pulse churns the ocean circulation that controls our climate. A film he wants us to watch is called "Chasing Ice"
