Pancake ice at the end of the world.

The Southern Ocean is one major buffer for anthropogenic heat and carbon. It is a major mediator of the exchange of heat and momentum between the atmosphere and the ocean and its large seasonal variation is determined by the interaction between these components in the marginal ice zone (MIZ). In March and April 2017 the extent of Antarctic sea ice reached the lowest minima in the existing records, raising concerns on the anticipated response to anthropogenic warming.
