The Atlantic Meridional Transect
(AMT) is a multidisciplinary programme which undertakes biological,
chemical and physical oceanographic research during an annual
voyage between the UK and destinations in the South Atlantic. The
programme was established in 1995 and since then has
included 23 research cruises involving 223 scientists from 18
countries. AMT has proved to be a long-term multidisciplinary ocean
observation programme, which is a platform for national and
international scientific collaboration, a training arena for the
next generation of oceanographers and an ideal facility for
validation of novel technology.
Hosted at Plymouth Marine Laboratory in
conjunction with the National Oceanography Centre.
