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.
