Icy Inverts Antarctica Cruise Nov-Dec 2013


A group of scientists studying the biology of marine invertebrate animals will board the ship ASRV Laurence M. Gould and embark on a four-week voyage through Antarctic waters. During the cruise they will examine invertebrates (animals without backbones) living in some of the most remote, but fastest changing, seas on the planet. The team will explore biogeographic patterns in the Bellingshausen, Amundsen, and Ross Seas. Once they return, genomic and morphological tools will be used to assess unrecognized genetic variation and patterns of relatedness between populations of marine Antarctic species.

Follow us during our cruise to the Antarctic in the daily shipboard blogs. Dr. Andy Mahon, our Co-PI from Central Michigan University, is also hosting a cruise blog.
