Williams, GD and Lieser, JL, 3D Antarctic map to chart impact of climate change, Thomson Reuters, Thomson Reuters, online, 15 October 2012 (2012) [Media Interview]


Oct. 15 - Climate scientists on a two-month voyage to East Antarctica, have produced the first three dimensional map of sea ice in the region. The researchers, from Australia's Antarctic Division, used a free-swimming submarine to produce the map which, they say should reveal clues about the impact of climate change. Rob Muir reports.
