The Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (AMOS) is delighted to announce the 28th AMOS Annual Conference: ‘Science for Impact’. We will hold this event online, 8–12 February 2021. Our ‘Science for Impact’ theme highlights the real-world benefits science has, and can continue to have, through collaboration and partnerships. AMOS 2021 delegates are not just from Australia but from across the world—researchers, government representatives, NGOs, businesses, students and the media.

We are pleased to present newly combined high-resolution reconstructions of Antarctic palaeotopography and Southern Ocean palaeobathymetry for five time intervals between the Eocene–Oligocene boundary (ca. 34 Ma) and the present-day. The grids were produced by merging separately published reconstructions of palaeotopography and palaeobathymetry from two recent studies (Paxman et al., 2019; Hochmuth et al., 2020), and are a key output of the Past Antarctic Ice Sheet dynamics (PAIS) Antarctic palaeotopography and palaeobathymetry working group of SCAR. The grids are freely available to download here.Read more ...
