Abstract

New research sees scientists using remote-controlled submarines to create 3D maps of Antarctic sea ice. And the results suggest sea ice is thicker than previously thought. The area covered by Antarctic sea ice appears to be slightly growing each year, the reasons for which are proving hard to pin down. Today's research adds another dimension to unravelling the complex goings-on around the South Pole.
