Episode 208: Zooming in on Zooplankton

Sylvie King is a master's student at the Institute of Marine and Antarctic Science (IMAS), in affiliation with the Australian Antarctic Partnership Program (AAPP) and the Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS). In this episode we dive deep into her world researching and modelling zooplankton in the southern ocean. 

What are zooplankton and why should we be continuously monitoring them? What is it like spending months on a research vessel in the southern ocean, never seeing land? How can we bring Antarctic research back home and make the science done down there accessible? 

Learn all this and more in this week's episode with Sylvie!
