Register now to join a free National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine webinar on May 4 at 2 pm EDT to explore the themes discussed
at the workshop Antarctic Sea Ice Variability in the Southern Ocean-Climate System. The workshop focused on the potential mechanisms driving increases in
the extent and concentration of the sea ice surrounding Antarctic from the late 1970s until 2015—increases that were not reproduced by climate models, and that came despite the overall warming of the global climate and the region (<a href="https://www.nap.edu/catalog/24696/antarctic-sea-ice-variability-in-the-southern-ocean-climate-system?utm_source=Division+on+Earth+and+Life+Studies&utm_campaign=a72d77e344-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2017_04_24&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_3c0b1ad5c8-a72d77e344-&mc_cid=a72d77e344&mc_eid=%5bUNIQID%5d">summarized
