Oden Southern Ocean 2008-09 - Yager - Sea Ice microbial biogeochemistry
Entry ID: YagerOSO08

Abstract: The Oden Southern Ocean 2008-2009 expedition (OSO08), which was an international collaborative research project, took place between November 2008 and January 2009 and traveled across the poorly studied south Pacific sector of the Antarctic between Montevideo, Uruguay and McMurdo Station, Antarctica. Although sea-ice biota have been studied for decades, the Oden cruise afforded a unique ... View entire text

Purpose: Polar regions are changing rapidly in response to human activities. Although the total extent of Antarctic seasonal sea ice has not yet changed significantly as a result of climate change, regional reductions or growth can be extensive and coupled to global cycles such as ENSO and the Southern Annular Mode. Future reductions are predicted by climate models. Changes in sea ice extent and ... View entire text
