In addition to the official vEGU sessions, we are planning a joint discussion session (with OS1.7: Under cover: The Southern Ocean’s connection to sea ice and ice shelves) on Wednesday 28 April, at 13:30-15:30 CEST, where we will discuss in more depth topics arising from the sessions, such as the role of Southern Ocean circulation for the uptake and storage of heat and carbon, ecological and biogeochemical exchanges, ocean-ice interactions and the role of the Southern Ocean in wider climate. The discussion session is structured as a 1-hour plenary using zoom and moderated by the convenors, followed by a 1-hour informal exchange in break out groups using “wonder.me”. We especially encourage Early Career Researchers to participate and to use these informal sessions as an opportunity for networking with fellow Southern Ocean enthusiasts. The links to the rooms be displayed to attendees at the vPICO session. If you are a registered attendee but cannot attend the vPICO session please directly contact a convener for breakout session details.
