Summary
Abstract: The Kerguelen Axis voyage was planned to collect data to enhance the realism of end-to-end ecosystem models being developed in the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre, to investigate the effects of climate change and ocean acidification on Southern Ocean ecosystems in the Indian Sector (particularly in relation to factors affecting the northern distribution of Antarctic ...

Purpose: Complimentary studies were designed to investigate: i) the key physical and biological drivers of Antarctic krill distribution, including factors that determine its northern limits, that can be used in ecosystem models aimed at investigating the dynamics of the krill-based food web and how this may be impacted by climate change and ocean acidification on Southern Ocean ecosystem; ii) the relative ...

Generally, the K-Axis marine science voyage met science goals. Some on-board experiments were terminated early due to the grounding of the vessel at Mawson Station in late February 2016 and scientific sampling was also halted at this time.
