Welcome to the Ross Sea research website!
This site has information about the recent Ross Sea research Planning Meeting. During this meeting we developed a conceptual framework (see left) for conducting Ross Sea research in support of its Marine Protected Area. The overarching objective is to better understand the structure and function of the Ross Sea marine ecosystem and how it is impacted by ongoing climate change and fishing pressure. We envision a research network comprising: Biophysical Modeling, Data Science & Cyberinfrastructure, Observation and Process Studies, and involving Public and Policy engagement throughout.
