The Northern Antarctic Peninsula (NAP), which encompasses the Bransfield Strait, the southernmost part of the Drake Passage, the northwestern Weddell Sea and the region north of the Western Antarctic Peninsula shelf, is primarily important because of the evolving changes on ecosystems and ocean-atmosphere-cryosphere dynamics related to climate changes issues. In this sense, the NAP is a key-region for better understanding and predicting the likely effects of anthropogenic actions in a variety of distinct transition zones in the Southern Ocean. During this talk, I will be presenting some studies carried out in the NAP , a region being intensively studied by the Brazilian High Latitude Oceanography Group (GOAL) since the 2000s, thus helping to shed light on the intriguing climate and ecology puzzle still unsolved for that region and important in a broader circumpolar scenario of ocean and environmental changes.
