MARE will be part of AMT28 expedition!

Later in the fall of 2018, our colleague Andreia Tracana of MARE-Fciências.ID will join the forthcoming AMT28 expedition which will take place on board the RRS James Clark Ross (JCR). AMT (Atlantic Meridional Transect) is a well-known scientific research programme hosted at the Plymouth Marine Laboratory in conjunction with the National Oceanography Centre, aiming at enabling scientists to undertake open ocean observations through a broad latitudinal degree along the Atlantic Ocean. At MARE, our plan is to collect seawater samples for the study of the phytoplankton communities, including coccolithophores, in hopes of observing N-S ecological changes potentially linked to variable inputs of atmospheric dust. 

 This is the trajectory of the first AMT expedition which took place from 21 September to 24 October 1995 on-board the RRS  James Clark Ross.  The ship sailed from Grimsby (UK) to Montevideo (Uruguay) and then continued on to Stanley (Falkland Islands). Read more about it  here .
