Antarctic sea ice is a key element in the global climate system. Its growth each winter creates cold, deep ocean conditions that help sustain Antarctica’s ice sheets, it modifies storms in the Southern Hemisphere, and it affects the rate of global warming by influencing ocean heat uptake in the Southern Ocean.
The images featured in this series of Ross Dependency stamps represent the work of New Zealand’s leading Antarctic sea ice scientists. Along with their teams, they are conducting ground-breaking research in McMurdo Sound, investigating better ways to predict the future and, in turn, how the changing climate may impact the fragile sea ice balance in Antarctica.
