A01-1 Circulation dynamics of heat, freshwater, and material originating from Antarctic Bottom Water

Targeting East Antarctic region that has been a missing piece of abyssal circulation, we will quantify the formation, circulation, and variation of the Antarctic Bottom Water and the accompanying material cycles, including the influence of the melting ice shelves, based on in-situ observations.
