Changes in the Antarctic ecosystem could impact the fur seals’ food supply, making foraging harder and in turn affecting the overall health of the population.
Saildrone has partnered with the 1851 Trust to develop a series of data-driven lesson plans on issues related to the 2019 Antarctic Circumnavigation, free for teachers and educators.
Penguins are the most famous of Antarctic seabirds, but the region is home to dozens of pelagic species, including albatrosses, petrels, and terns.
Saildrone and NOAA have been working closely to pioneer the use of autonomous technology for fisheries management and conservation.
SD 1023 captured this image in the Arctic, sparking a lively discussion among the Saildrone team and our science partners.
The Southern Ocean is critical for controlling how much CO2 is in the atmosphere, but as the water absorbs more carbon it becomes more acidic—and that could affect the health of a lot of organisms.
Just how variable is CO2 uptake in the Southern Ocean in winter?
The Saildrone Award provides researchers with 30 days of ocean data collection for an innovative research project.
Saildrones will attempt to track and study the behavior of chinstrap penguins tagged with GPS locators during the 2019 Antarctic Circumnavigation mission.
Bring Antarctica into your classroom with three STEM-oriented lesson plans that teach students about krill and its role in the global food web.
Saildrone designs, manufactures and operates a global fleet of wind and solar powered ocean drones, providing in-situ data collection services, global ocean data sets and enhanced weather forecast applications.
