• 2022 Call for SCOR Working Groups

    The Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) Secretariat invites proposals for new working groups to commence activities in late 2022.

    SCOR working groups are formed of not more than 10 Full Members and 10 Associate Members, to deliberate on a narrowly focused topic and develop a peer-reviewed publication and/or some other product that will advance the topic on which the working group is focused. The group’s work is intended to be completed in 4 years or less. Instructions, guidelines, and template.

    Deadline for submission: 30 April 2022

  • Climate changes modulated the history of Arctic iodine during the Last Glacial Cycle

    14 January 2022

    A new study, published in Nature Communications, reports for the first time the iodine variability of the Arctic atmosphere for the last 127,000 years. Using two Greenland ice cores, the international team found the highest and lowest iodine levels recorded during interglacial and glacial periods, including the whole last cold period called the Last Glacial Cycle, and has developed a multidisciplinary research strategy to understand the composition of the Arctic atmosphere and what the mechanisms controlled its evolution.

    The analysis of the halogens contained in the ice, together with the concentrations of other elements such as calcium or sodium, has revealed how the ocean is the great regulator of iodine in the Arctic atmosphere: the variability of this element is fundamentally controlled by the dynamics of the ice pack and by the biological productivity of the oceans. The concentration of this element can potentially influence climate and this study can help researchers to better constrain the future projections of iodine atmospheric concentrations in the Arctic.
