Research and education
Our research targets are topics related to ocean dynamic and climate change in the polar regions, espcially in the Southern Ocean and Antarctica.
We are also runnning the polar region education program, International Antarctic Institute -IAI-, with International colleagues.

We will lead and contribute to studies of ocean-sea ice-ice sheet interaction in East Antarctic Region, Research of Ocean-ice BOundary interacTIon and Change around Antarctica (ROBOTICA), starting from the 2016 season.
