Voyage to Antarctica
These photos are from my IPY voyage on board the NIWA research vessel RV Tangaroa in February and March 2008. NIWA’s research vessel the Tangaroa went on an 8-week voyage to the Ross Sea to survey the marine environment and explore biodiversity in the region. The journey took place during the International Polar Year (IPY) – a global scientific programme designed to better understand the land and sea environments of the Arctic and Antarctic and the effects climate change has on them.
