The Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) is finding ways to maintain critical science, even as the COVID-19 pandemic slows the pace of activities in Antarctica.

Our scientists are participating in international scientific meetings virtually.

In the labs in Hobart, microinvertebrates collected from lakes and soil are being reared for research and ice cores drilled from one of Antarctica’s snowiest places are being analysed.

Research papers are still being published while juggling the demands of working from home.

Science at the AAD will continue even in this changing world.
