Voyage to the sub-antarctic

A five-week marine science voyage to the sub-Antarctic, between January and February this year, investigated a range of ocean properties and processes involved in the cycle of carbon from the atmosphere to the deep ocean. The research, which is critical to understanding the likely impacts of climate change on ocean ecosystems, involved scientists from the Australian Antarctic Division, Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre, CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research and several international institutions. The following articles outline the early results of four research projects conducted during the Sub-Antarctic Zone Sensitivity to Environmental Change voyage.
