Seafloor sampling (macrofauna, epifauna, macroalgae, sediments, video footage and still photographs) of the north western Ross Sea area including Cape Hallett, Cape Adare, Coulman Island and Cape Russell
Entry ID: K082_2003_2004_NZ_1

Abstract: As part of the Italian led Victoria Land Transect (VLT) project voyage on board the RV Italica, diver based surveys of the structural and functional diversity of the shallow water benthic communities was conducted in the north western Ross Sea. SCUBA diving was conducted in shallow (<30m) coastal areas. During these dives, collections of macrofauna, epifauna, macroalgae and sediments were made, ... View entire text
