Main Activity/ Remarks: Dynamics of coastal outlet glaciers and implications on the overall mass balance of the Antarctic This programm aims at a better understanding of the specific dynamics of coastal outlet glaciers. Recent studies show rapid and recent ice thicknesses and especially surface velocities changes for these glaciers which impact far inland under the form of large-scale ice volume losses for the ice sheet (enhanced drainage). The programm plans to collect the required field data so as to understand and to model these coastal glaciers dynamics with an emphasis on the test zone of the Astrolabe glacier.

Main Activity/ Remarks: Feeding strategy and mechanisms of behavioural and physiological adaptation of penguins to climatic variability: their limitations and its impact on population dynamics We want to determine the extent to which penguins are able to cope with seasonal and interannual climatic changes and their consequences on the localization and abundance of their marine resources. We thus investigate their population dynamics by automatically tracking many individuals whose history is known. To this approach, which therefore enable us to avoid the bias of flipper banding and as well have control birds which are undisturbed, will be superimposed two studies, ashore in the breeding colony and at sea. In the colony, we aim to understand those behavioural and physiological processes which enable the birds to minimize body fuel utilization while fasting in order to succeed in breeding but still ensure their survival once those fuels are depleted. At sea, with biologging, we want to determine the feeding performance of the birds in relation to their individual experience and fitness, i.e. immunocompetence and body.

Main Activity/ Remarks: Glaciological studies at Dome Concordia The construction of the permanent station at Dome Concordia near the EPICA site is considered of a great interest for glaciological studies in France. Experiments and modeling will contribute to the interpretation of the EPICA ice core by the reconstruction of past surface temperatures, and estimation of the transfer function between snow and ice for gases. Furthermore Dome Concordia is an ideal site for validation of remote sensing measurements over the high Antarctic plateau.

Main Activity/ Remarks: Relationships between « group think » phenomenon and group dynamics in isolated and confined environement. Psychological difficulties during wintering often affect interpersonal relationships and lead to creation of sub-groups. The relationships between “group think” phenomenon and group dynamics will be studied. The results should lead to training and support techniques allowing to limit “group think” phenomenon which often had bad consequences on the group performance.

Main Activity/ Remarks: HAMSTRAD - H2O Antarctica Microwave Stratospheric and Tropospheric Radiometers The HAMSTRAD project is intended to focus on the long-term time evolution of water vapour both in the stratosphere and in the troposphere that can impact on the climate evolution. Stratospheric phenomena of dehydration/rehydration, descent, filamentation and vortex breakup will be studied. Phase change together with ice diurnal cycle will be investigated in the troposphere. These measurements will be compared to the 3D Chemical Transport Model MOCAGE. The project will also participate to the validation of space-borne sensors measuring tropospheric and stratospheric H2O. Finally, HAMSTRAD will help validating Southern Hemisphere high latitudes analyses from the European Centre ECMWF.

Main Activity/ Remarks: Integrated Coastal Ocean Observations in Terre Adélie Long term synoptic monitoring of polar oceans has always been a challenge and annual mesoscale surveys are rare. If krill dominated areas are quite well known, monitoring is needed to study the trophic web in neritic zone. The motivation of the project is to gather through a multidisciplinary effort, long-term information on the composition of the marine biota over the Eastern Antarctic continental shelf in relation to environmental variability including seaice variability. Key species or assemblages will be monitored. For the pelagic realm, the study will focus on the control of the pelagic ecosystem by few species of euphausiids and (micro)nekton on plankton. For the benthic realm, it will be proposed to understand how communities indicate the level of perturbance linked to iceberg scouring and how the benthos and demersal fish may react to glacier retreat.

Main Activity/ Remarks: Seabirds and marine mammals as sentinels of global changes in the Southern Ocean The program uses seabirds and marine mammals as indicators of global changes in the marine ecosystems of the southern ocean. Through a network of 4 observatories (Crozet, Kerguelen, Amsterdam Islands and Dumont d'Urville in Terre Adelie) the populations of 25 species of the marine top predators and their distribution at sea are monitored since 50 years. These individually based long term information are used to understand the processes though which climate affect marine ecosystems, and to make predictions on the future changes in these ecosystems, as well as to propose conservation measures to limit the impact of fisheries on some populations.

Main Activity/ Remarks: Seismology at Concordia The program has two main goals: the set-up and operation of a broad-band station "observatory-like" and the deployment of a seismometer array. Both aspects of the project aim at contributing the study of both the Earth's structure and earthquakes. The observatory station is intended to supplement the worldwide seismological network in a region where its coverage remains very sparse. The goal of the seismometer array is to observe low-energy seismic waves. The Concordia site benefits from several favorable conditions for deploying such an array.

Waste Management Plans Report
Environmental Information - Waste Disposal and Waste Management (Waste Management Plans)
Title: Organisation de la gestion des déchets
Fixed Site/Field Camp/Ship: Dumont d'Urville, Concordia and Cap Prudhomme stations
Objective:
Implementation Report: The waste management on the three stations follow the recommendations of Annex III of the Madrid protocol. The attach document (in French) describes the main plan at Dumont d'Urville (DDU) and is applicable to Cap Prudhomme. At Concordia, all the wastes are sorted by category and transported to Dumont d'Urville by the ground traverses. At DDU, some of these wastes are sorted again and added to the wastes produced on this station. Then all the wastes return either in Australia (according to some special agreements) or in France. At Concordia station, the grey water are treated in order to reuse 80% of the water.

Description of Activity: The building were erected to accomodate workers during the construction of an airstrip which was never used.
Period of Activity: Date begin:  01 Oct 1981   Date end:  01 Oct 1981
Remaining Equipment or Facilities: The buildings are now complety ruined During the season 2008-09 a project of cleaning and restoration of the site started. Most of the buildings have been removed, the wastes sorted and packed for exportation of Antarctica. The work will be finished during the next season 2009-10.

Permit Period: From:  01 Oct 2008   To:  01 Oct 2009
Purpose: Scientific purpose : studies on Adélie penguin and emperor penguins
Summary of activities: The program aims at investigating the original mechanisms developed by growing Adélie penguins and their fuelling with energy substrates. The rapid building-up of fat stores through adipogenesis and lipogenesis may represent an essential condition for the survival of chicks growing in the cold and adult facing long term fast during their breeding. Sampling will be carried out on deads specimens of emperor penguins.

Permit Period: From:  01 Nov 2008   To:  01 Nov 2009
Purpose: Scientific purpose : studies on Adélie penguin and emperor penguins
Summary of activities: The program aims at understanding behavioural and physiological adaptations in emperor and Adélie penguins which allow them to cope with environmental constraints on land and at sea with respect to their age, at the individal, pair and population levels. Birds will be marked, some samples will be carried out. A mobile robot will be used for testing purposes. No birds will be handled by this tool. This test aims at appreciating the possibility of using a robot to set up a demographic study.
