IMCOAST is an international research programme on the impact of climate induced changes on marine coastal systems at King George Island (Western Antarctic Peninsula). It features a multidisciplinary approach involving geo and biological sciences, field investigations, remote sensing and modeling and knowledge into the hydrographical and biological history of the marine coastal ecosystems. The objectives are:

To quantify variability and changes in fresh water budgets in coastal ecosystems and to provide the physical boundary conditions for geochemical, sedimentological and biophysical research

Understand the effect of glacial retreat on sub-glacial and land run-off dynamics at in the past and present

Analyse carbon recycling in the sediment surface of coastal systems with and without impact of sedimentation, and the bentho-pelagic coupling in KGI coastal food webs

This presentation will provide an overview of ongoing IMCOAST research and current results.

This talk is part of the British Antarctic Survey - Polar Oceans seminar series series.
