Abstract: The Census of Antarctic Marine Life (CAML) Project Archive is a collection of scanned documents, maps, videos, and other related material that comprise the organisation and management documentation associated with a major research project of international significance. CAML measured the distribution and abundance of life in the Southern Ocean around Antarctica so that future impacts of climate ... change and human activities can be better understood. CAML coordinated the largest-ever survey of the Southern Ocean with 18 voyages in Antarctic waters, and inventoried over 16,000 marine species with hundreds new to science, provided DNA barcodes for 1,500 species, and has so far produced more than 600 scientific publications. CAML is a key activity of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR); a subproject of the Census of Marine Life (CoML); and was a major initiative of the 2007-2009 International Polar Year (IPY).
Purpose: The CAML Project Archive includes: internal and annual reports; reports to the funding agency (Alfred P. Sloan Foundation); maps of voyage routes and sampling areas; sampling protocols; research synthesis; science plans; barcoding project information; meeting agendas, minutes, and selected powerpoint presentations; list of ships and voyages; and videos, media, and press releases.
