UC scientist studies climate record embedded in Antarctic ice

A Canterbury climate modeller is part of an international team studying a 764-metre ice core that preserves over 80,000 years of global climate data.


Dr Abhijith Ulayottil Venugopal, a Postdoctoral Fellow from the School of Physical and Chemical Sciences at Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha | University of Canterbury (UC), carried out his research as part of the Roosevelt Island Climate Evolution (RICE) project, a nine-nation collaborative science venture led by New Zealand.  

The RICE project aims to investigate the stability of the Ross Ice Shelf and the West Antarctic Ice Sheet in a warming climate, and to better understand implications for global sea level change.
