The Southern Ocean is a region of potentially dramatic climate change impacts, due to the large amount of freshwater tied up in the Antarctic ice sheet and the potential for sea level rise accompanying loss of that ice.  It is the region of the largest deep ocean heat gains of the global ocean, likely due to changes in production of dense waters in coastal regions of Antarctica.
