An unusually large cyclone has been buffeting the Antarctic coast this week, shifting sea ice that had already been tracking at record-low levels. While the storm in the Ross Sea is unrelated to events formed in the tropics, the cyclone is being watched closely by experts trying to understand how developments in the far south affect the wider climate in the southern hemisphere and beyond.
