FINNISH ANTARCTIC RESEARCH PROGRAM
Project DescriptionAdapted from the FINNARP website,
The Finnish Antarctic Research Program operates within the Institute of Marine
Research. Its aim is to support the practical implementation of Antarctic
research projects that are funded by the Academy of Finland or other sources
such as research institutes.
The fieldwork in the Antarctic is usually carried out in the Finnish research
centre Aboa and from there to other areas in the western Queen Maud Land. If
needed, FINNARP arranges working facilities in the research stations of other
countries as well. For marine scientific projects FINNARP arranges
transportation and working facilities on ships.
FINNARP_95-96 includes projects carried out by the program between 1995-1996.
Southern Ocean research was conducted onboard the research vessel, R/V Aranda.
