Resilience in Antarctic biota and ecosystems - Marine
It is predicted that coastal marine environments are to become warmer, more acidic and less productive in the future. We aim to determine whether and how Antarctic marine life will cope with these changes. Our team of scientific divers will dive beneath the sea ice, armed with underwater cameras and specialised sampling gear, to explore the biodiversity of the seafloor. Experiments will be conducted on these unique seafloor organisms and ecological communities to better understand their resilience to altered environmental conditions linked to climate change.
