Summary: Researchers returned recently from a 6-week research voyage aboard the RV Tangaroa to the Southern Ocean and Ross Sea region of Antarctica. Dr Sarah Seabrook went searching for seafloor seeps of subglacial fluids into the ocean.
Summary: Researchers recently returned from a 6-week research voyage on the RV Tangaroa to the Southern Ocean and Ross Sea region of Antarctica. They were able to access enough nearshore water to complete planned research into coastal benthic biota. They gathered over 4,000 images of benthic marine life and filmed 41,000 square metres of sea floor previously unseen. Here's Miles Lamare’s highlights.
Summary: Researchers returned recently from a 6-week research voyage aboard the RV Tangaroa to the Southern Ocean and Ross Sea region of Antarctica. A total of 333 trace metal concentration and 130 trace metal isotope samples were collected, including characterisation of sea ice and glacial ice. Here's Cliff Law's highlights.
Summary: New Zealand’s Antarctic scientists are racing to document life on the seafloor in the Ross Sea before ecosystems change, possibly forever, as the world warms. It comes as scientists gather in Wellington for the Antarctic Science Platform's hui.
Summary: Beneath a vast Antarctic ice shelf, in a cathedral-like cavern hundreds of metres high, are swarms of little shrimp-like creatures in a newly discovered underwater ecosystem that, until recently, had remained an ice-locked secret.
