Cruises

AMT Cruise ship from aboveAMT cruises undertake biological, chemical and physical oceanographic research during the annual return passage of research ships between the UK and the Falkland Islands, South Africa or Chile, a distance of up to 13,500km.

The transect crosses a range of ecosystems from sub-polar to tropical and from euphotic shelf seas and upwelling systems to oligotrophic mid-ocean gyres.

The cruises have contributed to over 200 refereed publications and 70 PhD theses. AMT also provides training for the next generation of scientists.   

 

Expressions of interest are now invited for participation in AMT cruises in 2013 and beyond, please contact Andy Rees, apre@pml.ac.uk, for further details.
