Abstract

This research looking at the role of Antarctic sea-ice/ocean coupling in global climate change on the interannual timescale has involved: (1) Composing a more accurate time series of Antarctic sea-ice extent back as far as the homogeneous satellite record allows. (2) Statistically comparing this record with spatially-gridded temporal data of relevant climatological variables for the high-latitude Southern Ocean, including surface pressure, temperature, wind speed, precipitation and cloud cover, and searching for any present trends or correlations. The principal results of this Ph.D. research are summarised here.
