About TiPACCs

One of today’s greatest challenges is to understand the impacts of global warming on our environment and societies. One particular important, but highly uncertain, impact is the ongoing sea level rise due to melting ice sheets. TiPACCs assesses the possibility of near-future irreversible changes, so-called tipping points, in the Southern Ocean and the Antarctic Ice Sheet. Crossing these tipping points has significant societal consequences.

TiPACCs is a EU Horizon 2020 funded project that will run from August 2019 until July 2023.
