Ocean Talks sponsored by OFF

Yachts For Science are looking for vessels that are going to the Falkland Islands between October and January 2024 that are interested in offering their vessel as a platform for research. Dr Jesse van der Grient, chief scientist at South Atlantic Environmental Research Institute, will be working with an exciting team to synthesise existing knowledge on the ecosystem and perform additional surveys. The project aim is to collect data from the northwest Falkland Islands to understand how zooplankton distribution and effect of local oceanography affect zooplankton communities around the Falkland Islands and their role in the food web. The project team consists of 2 -3 researchers performing operations including the deployment of Bongo nets. Areas of interest include Carcass Island, West Point or South Jason Island.
