THEMISTO: Toward Hydroacoustics and Ecology of Mid-trophic levels in Indian and SouThern Ocean

The ZATA LTSER welcomes a new scientific programme, called “THEMISTO”, led by C├ędric Cotte. The biodiversity of the Southern Ocean is still poorly known, whereas it is under growing threats related to climate change and overfishing. The shear size of this ocean as well as its weather conditions present a sizeable challenge to scientists, somehow … More THEMISTO: Toward Hydroacoustics and Ecology of Mid-trophic levels in Indian and SouThern Ocean

The change in sea ice dynamics, and the future of marine birds and mammals

Among the consequences of climate change, the sea-ice coverage is changing fast. But is it increasing or decreasing ? Is the trend established on the long term, or are its dynamics more complex ? Is it changing at the same pace and in the same direction at both poles ? And above all, how will … More The change in sea ice dynamics, and the future of marine birds and mammals
