A01-3 Ecosystem dynamics in the Antarctic sea ice zone

Using research vessels, mooring and drifting systems, we will clarify the ecosystem structure and its dynamics in the seasonal sea ice zone. We will also try to evaluate the influence of the sea-ice variability on marine ecosystems and material circulation in East Antarctica.
