Acoustic Assessment of Southern Ocean Salps and Their Ecosystem Impact
Entry ID: NSF-ANT09-44042

Abstract: The importance of gelatinous zooplankton in marine systems worldwide is increasing. In Southern Ocean, increasing salp densities could have a detrimental effect on higher predators, including penguins, fur seals, and baleen whales. The proposed research is a methods-develoment project that will improve the capability to indirectly assess abundances and distributions of salps in the Southern Ocean ... View entire text
