PurposeResearch
ObjectivesCruise JR 161 was conducted within the Scotia Sea. Three transects were run as follows:
1. From Stanley in the Falkland Islands to Signy, South Orkneys.
2. From Signy towards the Polar Front North of the Island of South Georgia.
3. From the Polar Front back to Stanley.

Nine Stations were sampled in total; we remained on 3 stations for 4 days each and 6 stations for 2 days each. At each station we took samples and measurements to characterise the Oceanography, nutrients, phytoplankton, zooplankton, fish and higher predators.

The sampling was undertaken as part of the DISCOVERY 2010 BAS programme, with its remit to investigate and describe the response of the Southern Ocean ecosystem to climate variability, climate change and commercial exploitation.
