Antarctic webcams and timelapse video
The icebreaker Aurora Australis has a webcam which operates when the ship is on hire to the Division for scientific and resupply voyages in the Southern Ocean. There is also a daily construction timelapse video for Australia’s new icebreaker, Nuyina.
In addition, the krill cam gives an insight into life in the Division’s marine research aquarium where scientists study the the physiology, behaviour and reproduction of krill.
Weather data is collected by automatic weather stations operated by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology and AAD personnel at the stations. This data is also held by the Australian Antarctic Data Centre.
Also available is weather information from Dome A – possibly the coldest place on Earth.
