Almirante Maximiano PROVOCCAR I (GApr15)
|Ship name (ship code)||Almirante Maximiano (14AA)|
|Cruise identifier||PROVOCCAR I (GApr15)|
|Cruise period||2020-02-02 — 2020-03-08|
|Port of departure||Punta Arenas, Chile|
|Port of return||Punta Arenas, Chile|
|Objectives||The main objective of the cruise is to contribute to a better understanding of the combined influence (and variability) of the cooler and denser waters from the Weddell Sea, the relatively warmer waters from the Bellingshausen Sea and continental glacial ice inlets on the dynamics and dominant processes in the transitional marine environments of the North Antarctic Peninsula.
1. Investigate changes in the composition of dominant water bodies focusing on regions under the influence of the Weddell Sea and Bellingshausen Sea.
2. Evaluate the impact of glacial melting on changes in the composition of dominant water bodies in NAP transitional marine environments.
