Science Under the Ice: Dive with Coastal Marine Ecologists Under Sea Ice in Antarctica

Dr. Drew Lohrer

In October 2017 a team of scientists from New Zealand and Finland traveled to Antarctica to complete the 2017 Science Under the Ice expedition, which involved weeks of camping and diving under thick sea ice at one of the world’s southernmost accessible dive sites. Led by marine ecologist Dr. Drew Lohrer, the aim of the expedition was to explore how climate change is affecting marine biodiversity along the Antarctic coastline. Dr. Lohrer will show images and video to explain why and how they do science under the ice. He is a principal marine ecologist at the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research in New Zealand.
