UV radiation penetration through sea ice & effects on embryo & larval development, survival & damage of the sea urchin Sterechinus neumayeri, Antarctic Starfish Odontaster validus & Odontaster meridionalis in Ross Sea
UV radiation transmission measurements on sea ice surface and through the annual sea ice into the underlying water column were made during Antarctic spring months (October - November) along with various in situ and lab experiments on embryo and larval development and survival and DNA damage of the sea urchin Sterechinus neumayeri and Antarctic Starfish Odontaster validus and Odontaster meridionalis in McMurdo Sound, Ross Sea.

Taken from the 2008-2009 Progress Report: Variations to work plan or objectives: Calibration and upgrade of remote Solar UV radiation field work under AAS3106 is required during the 2009-10 Austral Summer because of its inadvertent cancellation in 2008-09 due to AAD operational requirements. Further ... personal dosimetry studies may be undertaken utilising electronic dosimeters as well as polysulphone badge dosimetry depending as part of OH and S monitoring requirements. It is noted there are new linkages with the project AAS 3160 2009-10 Australian Antarctic Medicine 1911-2011-history of Antarctic medicine which will overview research activities of which AAS 13, has been central in the past two decades.
