The Southern Ocean has a unique place in our climate system. It is
a region of extremes, where the world's strongest ocean currents, the
strongest wind regime, the most extensive sea ice cover, and the
largest ice sheets interact (for example, see the recent review by
Rintoul and Naveira Garabato, 2013). In addition, it houses a very productive
ecosystem that sequesters a significant fraction of the anthropogenic
CO2 in the ocean (Sabine et al., 2004; Takahashi et al., 2012).
