• The Drivers and Effects of Fluctuations in Sea Ice in the ANTarctic (DEFIANT) project is a UK-based research project that aims to improve our understanding of the factors that control Antarctic sea ice variability and the impacts of this variability on the Antarctic ecosystem and global climate.

  • Sea ice plays a critical role in the Antarctic climate system, influencing ocean circulation, atmospheric patterns, and the distribution of marine life. 

  • The extent and thickness of Antarctic sea ice have been declining in recent decades, raising concerns about the impacts of these changes.


  • The DEFIANT project is expected to make significant contributions to our understanding of Antarctic sea ice variability and its impacts

  • This information will be essential for informing climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies, and for managing the impacts of sea ice change on the Antarctic ecosystem.

  • The DEFIANT project is ongoing, and the research team is continuing to collect new data and develop new models to improve our understanding of Antarctic sea ice variability and its impacts.
