Census of Antarctic Marine Life (CAML) Archive of Project DocumentationEntry ID: CAML_Project_Archive.Media_Education_Outreach
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: Media_Education_Outreach includes: two videos (Oceans of Ice and Life Under the Ice); CAML fact sheet and two brochures; list of CAML accomplishments, short and long versions; cover image from the special issue of Deep Sea Research Part II edited by CAML personnel; poster and presentation from the 2010 project finale in London; press release about CAML, short and long versions; and other press releases, including an editorial from "The New York Times."
