Project: Impact of climate induced glacier melt on marine coastal systems in the West Antarctic Peninsula region (IMCOAST)
- project duration
- 01-JAN-09 – 31-DEC-11
- The objective is to combine physico-hydrographical, geochemical and biological proxies to reconstruct and model past, ongoing and future system changes due to sediment run-off in the Antarctic coastal area. The project mainly aims to assess and model the effects of sedimentation on Antarctic coastal species/communities. These effects will be studied by in-situ sampling, as well as in field and laboratory experiments.
