Project Description

Digital Twin Antarctica

Project Description

The Digital Twin Antarctica project aims to generate an advanced dynamic reconstruction of Antarctica’s hydrology, interaction with ocean and atmosphere, to be used by stakeholders such as decision makers, agencies, managers, scientists, and engaged citizens. The objective is to combine Earth Observation, ice-sheet-ocean-atmosphere simulation, and advanced machine learning and AI techniques to help understand the current state of the ice sheet and its evolution under different climate scenarios.

Digital Twin Antarctica is one of the precursor projects for Digital Twin Earth and builds on the 4D Antarctica project.
