Antarctica is one of the most vulnerable regions to the influences of climate change. Especially, the Antarctic ice shelves have been melting extensively with the rapid grounding line retreat over the past decades, resulting in a huge supply of glacial meltwater to the ocean. The melting of ice shelves primarily depends on the changes in oceanic conditions near their fronts (eg thermocline variability), thus, impact of glacial meltwater on local hydrography and ocean circulations needs to be investigated. In this presentation, I will investigate recent studies on the impact of glacial meltwater in Antarctica and show new observational results in Ross and Amundsen Seas to revisit the role of glacial meltwater. In addition, I will also introduce a new Antarctic research project (2023-2031) ‘Korea Network for Observation and prediction of ice sheet and sea level changes in a Warming world (K-NOW)’ which I am participating in as a Co-PI.
