[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Latitudinal Gradient Project (LGP) (http://www.lgp.aq/) is aimed at
increasing the understanding of the coastal marine, freshwater and terrestrial
ecosystems that exist along the Victoria Land coastline in the Ross Sea region,
and describing potential environmental variability that may occur in the
future. Antarctica New Zealand is providing the logistical capabilities for
research camps to be located at specific sites along the Victoria Land coast.
Thus, the opportunity to work at particular locations in collaboration with
other scientists from various disciplines and National Antarctic Programs is
provided. The first site to be studied was at Cape Hallett, northern Victoria
Land (2003-2006). Future work is planned for Terra Nova Bay and the Darwin
Glacier area.
