Antarctic Sea-ice Processes and Climate (ASPeCt)

The Expert Group on Antarctic Sea-ice Processes and Climate (ASPeCt) aims to improve our understanding of the Antarctic sea ice zone through focussed and ongoing field programmes, remote sensing and numerical modelling.

ASPeCt is an expert group on multi-disciplinary Antarctic sea ice zone research within the SCAR Physical Sciences programme. Established in 1996, ASPeCt has the key objective of improving our understanding of the Antarctic sea ice zone through focussed and ongoing field programmes, remote sensing and numerical modelling. The programme is designed to complement, and contribute to, other international science programmes in Antarctica as well as existing and proposed research programmes within national Antarctic programmes. ASPeCt also includes a component of data rescue of valuable historical sea ice zone information.
