A new atlas, providing the most thorough audit of marine life in the Southern Ocean, is published this week by the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR). Leading marine biologists and oceanographers from all over the world spent the last four years compiling everything they know about ocean species from microbes to whales. It’s the … Continue reading ATLAS Release
A dedicated team from all over the world is currently meeting in Villefranche sur Mer (France) to advance on the modelisation section of the iAtlas. The modelisation workshop is hosted by the Observatoire Océanologique de Villefranche sur Mer. We’ll be mashing up tons of environmental and biotic data, to come up with predictive maps … Continue reading Modelisation workshop
An international team is currently meeting in Villefranche sur Mer (France) to advance on the modelisation section of the iAtlas. The modelisation workshop is hosted by the Observatoire Océanologique de Villefranche sur Mer. We’ll be mashing up tons of environmental and biotic data, to come up with predictive maps for selected taxa, or groups of … Continue reading Modelisation workshop for the Biogeographic Atlas of the Southern Ocean
Welcome to the SCAR Biogeographic Atlas website. The objective of this site is to give some visibility to the project and to keep the many contributors informed on a single accesspoint. In the future, this website will host the dynamic edition of the Atlas, offering new online biogeographic resources, transposable in many global contexts, thanks … Continue reading The Vision
The scope of the ATLAS is to assemble in one publication (large format atlas + digital dynamic version on SCAR-MarBIN) a selection of representative maps and syntheses on the distribution of the Southern Ocean organisms, to provide a general overview of the biogeography of the Southern Ocean (s.l.) and a benchmark of current biogeographic knowledge … Continue reading The Biogeographic Atlas of the Southern Ocean
Take a look at John Turner's Antarctic Data Atlas! The Antarctic Data Atlas is an initiative of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) that aims to present various key fields concerning the past, present and possible future evolution of the Antarctic environment. It is complementary to the SCAR READER database that contains mean climate data for … Continue reading The Antarctic data atlas
A pdf version of the "classic" Hedgepeth Antarctic Map Folio 11 is available on our web repository. This is an inspiring resource upon which a major project (the Antarctic Biogeographic Atlas) is relying.
