GOING WITH THE FLOE: using bacterial hitchhikers to better understand Antarctic krill

The Scientific community has an astonishing wealth of information about Antarctic Krill.

KEEPING IT COOL when the temperature is rising

A vital opportunity to discover how Antarctica’s cold-adapted plants and animals survive in warmer environments, and what that means for the future.

UNLOCKING THE SECRETS of the seabed using ancient dna

New DNA techniques are starting to revolutionise our understanding of changes to marine life in the oceans over thousands of years.

do we risk losing a krill-based antarctic ecosystem?

Antarctic krill embody the phrase ‘good things come in small packages’.

MAPPING ANTARCTICA’S ICE SHELVES AND OCEAN FROM THE AIR

A specially adapted seaplane will enable new observations in Antarctica’s most inaccessible areas, leading to improved predictions of future sea-level rise.
