Fimbul ice shelf

The Fimbul Ice Shelf is an ice shelf located in Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica. The aim of the expedition to the Fimbul Ice Shelf is to understand the interaction between the Antarctic ice sheet and the ocean.

Our work studies connected atmosphere-ice shelf-sea ice-ocean processes, melting processes, and hydrography and circulation in the ocean underneath and north of the floating ice. The interactions between the ocean and the cryosphere in Antarctica are important processes for regional and global climate, and for the ecosystem.
