Collaboration with the Census of Antarctic Marine Life (CaML)
The Census of Antarctic Marine Life has invited MAR-ECO to suggest initatives for joint projects
The Census of Antarctic Marine Life (see www.caml.aq) will have extensive cruises in the Southern Ocean during the International Polar Year. A letter was received from Dr Michael Stoddart in which he invites us to suggest initiatives of common interest, e.g studies along the ocean ridges in the Southern Ocean.
Anyone with good suggestions are asked to come forward. Unfortunately we do not as yet have financial means to support any direct involvement, nor has any ship-time been committed to MAR-ECO related work in the Southern Ocean.
