International Polar Year (IPY) Census of Antarctic Marine Life (CAML) Project
In February-March 2008, New Zealand is participating in an international research programme, Census of Antarctic Marine Life (CAML), which aims to survey circumpolar marine biodiversity in the Southern Ocean and Antarctica during International Polar Year (IPY). R.V. Tangaroa will be used for the 8-week New Zealand-led voyage to the Ross Sea region in 2008, and survey planning is underway.
