Details/Description: Germany as one of the consultative parties since 1981 maintains its long-term commitment of scientific research in Antarctica. The Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) as the national coordinator enables Germany to maintain this role from its research and long-term monitoring and survey activities. In addition to AWI, the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR), the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) undertake long-term survey and remote sensing activities in Antarctica. The DFG Priority Program “Antarctic Research with comparative investigations in ice covered Arctic regions” supports Antarctic research projects of German universities. Scientific activities will also be coordinated with other national programs. AWI provides the main infrastructure for polar research, maintains the permanent German presence in Antarctica, and supports international objectives through collaborative scientific and logistic links with many other national programs. AWI will keep mobile and stationary infrastructures not only in top condition but also adapt to ever changing requirements posed by new scientific experiments and field observations. As an important contribution for long-term scientific activities is the new permanently occupied research station Neumayer Station III being commissioned in February 2009. In parallel efforts will be continued to further develop logistic infrastructure in the frame of international collaboration. As a priority the international project Dronning Maud Land Air Network (DROMLAN) will be supported by AWI in order to maintain and further improve an intercontinental air-link from Cape Town to destinations in Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica.

Project Name/Number: RV Polarstern - Leg ANT XXVI-2
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Rainer Gersonde (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: Scientific activities report: Expedition ANT-XXVI/2 started on November 27, 2009 in Punta Arenas, Chile, and took R/V Polarstern for the first time across the entire polar South Pacific. After 59 days at sea the expedition ended on January 26, 2010 in Wellington, New Zealand. On board were 45 crewmembers and 43 scientists, technicians and helicopter personnel. The science crew, including 17 women, was a multicultural mix of nationals from 11 countries in Europe, North America and Asia. The focus of expedition ANT-XXVI/2 was marine-geoscientific studies, accomplished on five transects across the polar South Pacific. The first transect is north of the Subantarctic Front between 80°W and 135°W, extending from the eastern Mornington Abyssal Plain to the Eltanin Fracture Zone System. In the area of the Freden Seamounts (57°30´E, 91°S) eight sediment cores with core lengths up to 23 m were recovered to obtain more information on the impact of the Eltanin asteroid about 2.5 Million years ago [Gersonde, AWI]. On the further way to the East Pacific Rise heavy weather conditions with wave highs up to 9-11 m forced a change of heading towards the northern Amundsen Abyssal Plain. Here pre-site survey in the frame of a deep-sea drilling proposal was accomplished [Gersonde, AWI]. However, planned seismic survey had to be aborted because of technical problems [Gohl, AWI]. The two following transects extend in southwesterly direction into the seasonal sea ice covered Amundsen Basin (around 65°S) and from there into northwesterly direction to the Subantarctic Front in the Southwest Pacific Basin close to the Udintsev Fracture Zone. Extensive station work (13 sites) was completed on the fourth transect to the Ross Sea. However, in the beginning of this transect heavy weather conditions required fast evasion towards the South until the crest of the Pacific-Antarctic Ridge was reached. After the sea had calmed station work could be completed successfully north of the ridge. The southernmost site of the expedition was reached around 68°44´S and 164°48´W in the northern Ross Sea. From here started the last transect towards Wellington. After crossing the Pacific-Antarctic Ridge heavy weather forced two other evasions. The last six sites of the cruise were completed close to the Subantarctic Front on the New Zealand margin at water depth between 2500 and 670 m. ANT-XXVI/2 geological station work was completed at 72 sites (PS75/34 – PS75-105). A total of 1030.31 m sediment core was recovered with a piston corer (49 deployments), a gravity corer (7 deployments) and a kasten corer (1 deployment) [Gersonde, AWI]. Surface sediment was sampled at 38 sites with the multicorer and at 1 site with the box corer [Gersonde, AWI]. Sediment-echosounding (PARASOUND) [Gersonde, AWI] and swatch bathymetry (HYDROSWEEP) [Schenke, AWI] was conducted over ca. 9400 nm. This is complemented by 28 CTD casts across the water column to measure vertical profiles of temperature, salinity and chlorophyll and 22 net hauls with the multinet to sample plankton at five depth intervals in the upper 1500 m of the ocean [Gersonde, AWI]. Additionally water samples were collected with the rosette water sampler and the ships pumping systems to measure nutrient and gas concentration, investigate the distribution of microplankton and pigments and to measure stable isotopes in the water column [Gersonde, AWI]. Also, atmospheric dust was collected along the transects [Garcia-Martinez, UAB Spain]. The aim of the studies that can be conducted based on the data and samples collected during ANT-XXVI/2 is to document the role, evolution, and impact of climatically relevant mechanisms such as the biological pump, circulation and stratification of the ocean, water masses, sea ice extent, atmosphere-ocean exchange, atmospheric circulation and the volume and dynamic of the Antarctic ice sheets on geological time scales. This is part of the HIPAS-BIPOMAC project [Gersonde, AWI] The sediment cores will allow paleoceanographic and paleoclimatic reconstruction at a resolution of 102-103 years over the past 900.000 years in the area north of the winter sea ice extent and at lower resolution, but back to ca. 4.5 Million years, in the seasonal sea ice covered area. At the moment very little information is available about climate history and related processes in the Pacific sector of the Southern Ocean, which is an important region of water mass formation, and the key region for understanding of the evolution and dynamics of the Antarctic ice sheets as it collects ca. 70% of the West Antarctic ice sheet drainage. The surface sediment samples, data and samples from the water column will further improve geoscientific proxies for the reconstruction of past climate conditions. The data and samples will be studied in national and international co-operations within the frame of the AWI program PACES, the program of the DFG Research Center „The Ocean in the Earth System“, the EU-Program „Past4Future“, the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) and other national (DFG) and international projects. The project OCEANET did not take place on this cruise leg. Scientific equipment: On RV POLARSTERN: Multibeam bathymetry (Hydrosweep), sediment-echography (Parasound), CTD, rosette-water sampler, multi-net, Nansen net multi-corer, large box corer, Piston corer, gravity corer, kasten corer

Project Name/Number: Adaptive competence and ecology of cold-stenothermal fish and cephalopods: Influence of oxygen transport proteins and mitochondrial functioning on thermal sensitivity
Discipline: marine biology, biochemistry, ecology
Principal Investigator: Felix Mark (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: Temperature largely affects ectothermal marine animals and thus determines their biogeography. Recent insights demonstrated the close relationship of oxygen availability and transport within higher ectotherms for species fitness and abundance. In continuation of our previous work we studied the influence of oxygen transport proteins and mitochondrial functioning (the main oxygen sink) on thermal sensitivity of higher marine life. In detail: - Catching of live fish (preferably Notothenia coriiceps; Pachycara brachycephalum) and cephalopods (e.g. Paraledone spec.) by means of baited traps - Acclimation of animals to different temperatures within the thermal tolerance window - Sampling of tissues and blood - Physiological and molecular genetic characterisation of oxygen delivery proteins, mitochondrial functioning and signaling as well as ion regulatory capacities (most analytical work will be done in the home institute)

Project Name/Number: Air Chemistry Observatory
Discipline: klimatology, air chemistry
Principal Investigator: Rolf Weller (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: During the forthcoming summer campaign, our activities at Neumayer Station III station will focus on the installation of several aerosol measuring instruments from the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI, principal investigator: Risto Hillamo) in the new Air Chemistry Observatory. This extension of our instrumentation will aim at assessing aerosol scattering properties dependent on their chemical composition. To this end, an Optical Particle Counter (OPC) to measure aerosol size distribution, an impactor to determine size segregated chemical composition of the aerosol, and an additional nephelometer with an aerodynamic cut-off of 1 µm will be operated at least for the next over-wintering period. It is also planned to re-install a repaired condensation particle counter. Finally, the aerosol sampling apparatus has to be modified.

Project Name/Number: Airborne geophysical/glaciological surveys with POLAR 5 and support of ground-based fieldwork
Discipline: geophysics, glaciology
Principal Investigator: Daniel Steinhage (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: WEGAS offshore and DoCo (Dome Connections in East Antarctica) WEGAS (West-East Gondwana amalgamation and its separation) was the continuation of the earlier project VISA. The focus of WEGAS is the tectonic structure underneath the ice sheet of Dronning Maud Land. The instrumentation of POLAR 5 consisted of AWI’s RES system, a gravity meter, a magnetometer, laser scanner and altimeter, a nadir video and a digital camera, various GPS receivers, and the data acquisition system MEDUSA-P. The data collected will be used to study the tectonics of the region, but also to validate satellite measurements of CHAMP and GRACE as well as to contribute to local ice thickness data, surface and sub-glacial topography data sets. JASPER and ALISA Both surveys were focused on studies of the atmospheric boundary layer above the sea ice of the Weddell Sea. Flghts were also conducted in order to determine the interaction of radiation flux and impulse flux above rough sea ice. The flights for ALISA were flown above the Larsen ice shelf for studies of impact of radiation on the heat budget. Several flights were carried out in close collaboration with another survey aircraft operated by BAS. Furthermore a coordinated flight for comparison of the turbolence probes of the aircraft was conducted, showing good agreement between the two systems.

Project Name/Number: Biogeochemistry of Laternula elliptica
Discipline: marine ecology
Principal Investigator: Doris Abele (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: Our project focuses on the biogeochemistry of Laternula elliptica, an Antarctic soft-shell clam. Investigations of shells, tissues and hemolymph are used to establish biochemical proxies for the application of Laternula elliptica as an environmental archive. In situ Sampling was therefore carried out in areas strongly and less impacted by glacier melt, and experimental treatments with tracer supplementation were conducted in the Dallmann aquaria. Animals were collected in three different areas of Potter Cove (King-George-Island, South Shetland Islands) at Jubany Station. Whereas the main area includes five pseudo-randomly distributed stations along the southern shoreline in the East of Jubany station, two reference stations are located next to the glacier front and in the outlet to Maxwell Bay. Every station is represented by five animals for later archive interpretation. Furthermore experiments on iron uptake and assimilation were conducted. The main experiment lasted 50 days and included time-depended tests of starvation and feeding periods. During starvation animals were kept for 25 weeks in six aquaria (replicates) with filtered seawater (0.2 µm), before being fed iron enriched phytoplankton. The results should provide information about decrease and increase of tissue iron loads and the time scale of accumulation and de-enrichment, in hemolymph and five different tissues (gill, mantle, digestive gland, foot, siphon). Additionally 3 short time experiments (10 – 14 d) were carried looking at bivalve hemolymph as trace metal transport and storage “tissue”. In different approaches the influence of dissolved and particulate iron were tested to study different routes of incorporation for different Fe-fractions. The results of this study should contribute to a better understanding of trace metal transport and incorporation into Laternula elliptica. This study forms part of the project Rapid Climate Change at the Western Antarctic Peninsula: Chemical Flux Change and Environmental Consequences funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG). It is carried out in close cooperation with the project The geochemical response of sedimentary archives to rapid recent glacier retreat at the Western Antarctic Peninsula (WAP): from source to sink by Hans Brumsack from the University of Oldenburg.

Project Name/Number: Change of body weight, body composition and adaptation of the cardiovascular system during wintering in Antarctica
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Hanns Christian Gunga (ZWMB, Berlin), Eberhard Kohlberg (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: During summer season 2004/2005 a medical study started at Neumayer Station in cooperation with the Berlin Centre for Space Medicine (ZWMB) and the Alfred Wegener Institute. Data collection has been continued the complete wintering periods from 2005 to 2009. The 29th wintering team should resume the project in 2009. Measurements will be made during the whole wintering period focussed on the nine months lasting phase of isolation. All members of the wintering team will be involved. The project derives from space medicine which made it possible to study the impacts of extreme environments referring to the human organism. In the same way Antarctica presents the opportunity to do research on change of body weight, body composition and adaptation of the cardiovascular system under isolated conditions. It is intended to record the body composition of the wintering personnel with the non-invasive body impedance analysis. Conditional on dehydration of the organism in Antarctic climate there is an increased loss of water through respiratory tract and skin. This potential dehydration can be recorded by the measurement of the impedance. Additional monthly taken blood samples should give information about possible correlation between changes of the autonomous nervous system and some metabolic parameters. The autonomous nervous system is always involved in adaptation to extreme environments. That may become apparent in sleeplessness, loss of appetite, nausea and heart trouble. Early symptoms can be found in changes of the variability of heartbeat. This variability should produce knowledge about influence on the autonomous nervous system during isolation. There is a direct correlation between variability of heart frequency and actual state of reaction of the autonomous nervous system. All members of the wintering team will be introduced to the method and record an electrocardiogram weekly before getting up in the morning. The data are saved on a datalogger; the medical officer of Neumayer Station will transmit the data via computer and internet to the Berlin Centre for Space Medicine (ZWMB). Due to these periodical checkups the state of health of the personnel can be followed. The dataloggers are developed by the Berlin Centre for Space Medicine. They record the beat-to-beat intervals of the heart to find out the variability.

Project Name/Number: Differential selection of photobionts and ecophysiological acclimation by the bipolar lichen Cetraria aculeata
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Christian Printzen (Senckenberg Institute Frankfurt)
Main Activity/ Remarks: On November the 26th we departed from Punta Arenas (Chile) and arrived Jubany Station in the afternoon. In the following four weeks of our stay we collected about 80 Individuals of the lichen Cetraria aculeata and its associated lichen flora. The specimenes were collected in the area around Jubany research station. After collecting the lichens were cleaned with water and air dried to prepare them for storage and transport. After that the 80 individuals of Cetraria aculeata were frozen at the –80°C freezer in the station. Here they were waiting for a transport to the AWI in Germany. The samples of the associated flora of Cetraria aculeata were stored in two cargol boxes at normal temperature. At December the 25th we were leaving Jubany Research Station in the direction of Rio Gallegos (Argentinia). The collected lichen samples will be used in the DFG-project with the project number: PR-567/13.

Project Name/Number: DROMLAN Weather forecast service
Discipline: meteorology
Principal Investigator: Christian Kreutzmann (DWD), Hans-Joachim Möller (DWD)
Main Activity/ Remarks: Established in season 2002/2003 the meteorological observatory offers a detailed and individual weather forecast service for all activities in Dronning Maud Land. This service is performed in close cooperation between the Alfred-Wegener-Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) and the German Weather Service (DWD). During the summer season 2009/2010 several thousand forecasts get performed for field parties, ships, stations and especially aircrafts. It is obvious, that this service increases the safeness of the ambiguous projects in the Dronning Maud Land. Furthermore, it helps to reduce weather induced idle times of expensive flight operations to a minimum.

Project Name/Number: Foraging ecology of southern elephant seal males and oceanography
Discipline: biology, ecology
Principal Investigator: Joachim Plötz (AWI), Horst Bornemann (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: The project involves assessment of at-sea movements of southern elephant seal males from King George Island / Isla 25 de Mayo using satellite telemetry. It aims to describe (1) the physical environments passed by the seals during their foraging migrations at sea, and (2) their behavioral responses to the oceanographic features they experience, with (3) special emphasis on the influence of ice shelf water e.g. from the Filchner Trough outflow (around 79°S 36°W). This region has been frequented by some seals instrumented in 2000. The seals remained for several months in a localized 100 km wide shelf-slope area along the Filchner Trough outflow, which is considered an attractive feeding spot. The factors contributing to those oceanic “hotspots” of enhanced food availability are largely unknown, and called for re-instrumentation of adult males and to obtain higher resolution (oceanographic) data. We instrumented 15 adult male elephant seals with ARGOS satellite transmitters after the seals had completed their annual moult. The transmitters were glued to the fur on the animal’s head using a quick setting epoxy resin. Prior to the attachment of transmitters, the seals were immobilized. The immobilization procedure using blowpipe darts has been described in detail by Bornemann et al. 2000 [doi:10.1017/S0954102008001557], and underwent a new drug and dose regime as described by Carlini et al. 2009 [doi:10.1007/s00300-009-0592-7]. All procedures were carried out pursuant to the SCAR Code of Conduct for Animal Experiments. It is envisaged that a number of devices can be retrieved when the seals will have returned to beaches at ASPA 132 during their forthcoming breeding our moulting season in 2010/11.

Project Name/Number: GANOVEX X: Antarctica - From Gondwana to the Modern Continent
Discipline: geophysics, glaciology
Principal Investigator: Detlef Damaske (BGR, Germany), Andreas Läufer (BGR, Germany)
Main Activity/ Remarks: This BGR project involved the participation of a multinational and interdisciplinary team with scientists and technicians from Germany and Australia. The main topic of GANOVEX X (ANTARCTICA: FROM GONDWANA TO THE MODERN CONTINENT) has been designed based on the main results of the previous 1999/2000 GANOVEX VIII and 2005/06 GANOVEX IX campaigns. It involved a total of 9 scientific contributions that can be attributed to three subthemes, which are - The Ross Orogeny and geodynamics at Gondwana’s Palaeopacific margin - Gondwana between construction and break-up (the Late Palaeozoic to Mesozoic time window) - The modern continent - structure and shaping of Antarctica since the Late Mesozoic The individual projects covered different geoscientific disciplines involving sedimentology, structural geology, thermochronology, terrestrial cosmogenic nuclides (TCN) studies, volcanology, geochemistry, petrology, palaeontology, palaeomagnetism, geodesy, aeromagnetics, and microgravity. In addition, GANOVEX X serves as a platform for a biological project involving lichen studies along a section from the coast to higher elevations, which has a clear bio-geological relation with regards to exposure of rock surfaces after deglaciation of West Antarctica.

McMurdo Station (USA)
Project Name/Number: GARS-German Antarctic Receiving Station
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Erhard Diedrich (DLR, Director of GARS), Robert Metzig (DLR, Station Management)
Main Activity/ Remarks: 1. DLR (German Aerospace Center) During the reporting period the scientific and technical programs of the last 19 years have been continued. The aim was to support scientific projects related to climate change, mass balance, ice dynamics, geodesy, ozone hole etc. with information gathered by remote sensing satellite missions like ERS2 and TerraSAR-X. All received SAR data of ERS2 and TerraSAR-X were processed by DLRs D-PAF (processing and archiving facility) under ESA contract and by DLRs TerraSAR-X PGS (payload ground segment). Near-Real-Time ozone maps from ERS2 are available via the World Data Center for Remote Sensing of the Atmosphere if the station is occupied. ERS2 low rate data (Active Microwave Instrument (AMI) Wave & Wind mode, Radar Altimeter (RA), Along Track Scanning Radiometer (ASTR2), Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment (GOME), Microwave Radiometer (MWR), EGH telemetry data) were received in addition and provided to ESA. Envisat-ERS CInSAR Campaign Antarctica The Envisat-ERS cross-interferometry SAR campaign covering huge areas of Antarctica was possible only due to the operations of GARS O’Higgins. The acquisition of ERS2 interferometric SAR data was running 16 February - 27 April 2010 (http://earth.esa.int/object/index.cfm?fobjectid=6754). Data can be ordered through ESA’s EOLI-SA. TerraSAR-X Background Mission Antarctica The background mission has been enabled by integration of GARS O’Higgins in the TerraSAR-X (http://www.dlr.de/eo/en/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-5725/9296_read-15979/) mission concept. Due to this additional polar ground station with up-to 9 TerraSAR-X contacts each day the mission bottleneck downlink capacity has been widened. In accordance with the objectives of the TerraSAR-X Background Mission Antarctica (http://www.clisap.de/tsx-antarctica.html) high resolution StripMap data of Antarctic Peninsula, offshore Islands and Antarctic ice shelves have been acquired in GARS O’Higgins. During the reporting period the green localized ice shelf areas were covered in addition to repeated acquisitions of the red localized ice shelf areas. The TerraSAR-X StripMap data high resolution of up-to 3m and the unprecedented geolocation accuracy of TerraSAR-X SAR imagery provides scientists with new insights in the glaciology of the Antarctic Peninsula and the dynamics and changing stability of the Antarctic ice shelves, one focus of the International Polar Year (IPY). The paper from Angelika Humbert et al. “Deformation and failure of the ice bridge on the Wilkins Ice Shelf, Antarctica” (Annals of Glaciology 51(55) 2010, http://www.igsoc.org/annals/v51/55/t55A057.pdf) demonstrates impressively the potential of high resolution TerraSAR-X StripMap data. The TerraSAR-X Background Mission Antarctica was initiated by Angelika Humbert (University of Hamburg, KlimaCampus), Matthias Braun (University of Fairbanks, Alaska) and Robert Metzig (DLR). Within international context the TerraSAR-X Background Mission Antarctica was proposed and agreed during the 2nd SAR Workshop of the Space Task Group of the IPY Sub-Committee on Observations. Data access for scientific users is possible by accepted science proposal via http://sss.terrasar-x.dlr.de/ (TerraSAR-X Science Service System). TT&C Mission Support Operational TT&C support (24 h / 7 d) has been provided to DLR’s German Space Operations Center (GSOC) in charge of TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X mission control. On June 21st, after TanDEM-X launch and spacecraft separation the first acquisition was supported by GARS O’Higgins after handover from Troll. With 8 to 9 TT&C passes each day the GARS O’Higgins team was significant involved in the LEOP support for TanDEM-X. For more information related to the TanDEM-X Mission see http://www.dlr.de/eo/en/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-5727/10086_read-21046/ . In addition, TT&C support mainly related to software upload and contingency recovery has been provided for the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) mission and the CHAllenging Minisatellite Payload (CHAMP) mission. This support is in particular of importance for the extension of the GRACE mission through the end of its on-orbit life, expected in 2015 (http://www.dlr.de/en/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-1/86_read-24882/). 2. BKG (Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy): International VLBI Service (IVS) 5 IVS-OHIG sessions. The purpose of the IVS-OHIG (Southern Terrestrial Reference Frame) sessions is to tie together optimally the sites in the southern hemisphere. Because these sessions concentrate on the southern sites and do not use observing time to accurately tie these sites to far northern sites (as the global sessions do) they should yield a very accurate regional Terrestrial Reference Frame (TRF) around the South Pole. Reference: http://lupus.gsfc.nasa.gov/sess/sesshtml/2009/ohig65.html 2 IVS-T2 sessions. In general the purpose of the IVS-T2 sessions is to monitor the TRF via monthly sessions. Since April 2004 the purpose of the remaining IVS-T2 sessions has been changed by the IVS OPC (Observing Program Committee). The new plan uses larger networks for each T2 session, say 16 to 20 stations, but have fewer T2 sessions during the year. The larger network should provide a stronger solution and better TRF results, even if there are fewer sessions each year. The TRF determine from single session solutions or from a global solution is very important IVS product because this is an essential part for creating the ITRF by corresponding IERS Product Center. A particular strength of VLBI is its contribution to the scale of the ITRF. Usually the TRF is computed from the 24h sessions that are dedicated to observing the EOP. Reference: http://lupus.gsfc.nasa.gov/sess/sesshtml/2009/t2065.html 1 International Year of Astronomy 2009 Very Large Astrometry Session. As an activity for the International Year of Astronomy (IYA2009) the IVS was organizing a special astrometric session with as large participation as possible. The observing goal is to observe as many of the 295 ICRF2 defining sources in a single 24-hour session as possible avoiding possible systematic effects of patch-wise observing.

Traverse between the Russian Antarctic stations
Project Name/Number: Geophysical Observatory
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Alfons Eckstaller (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: Seismology: The main task of seismographic observations at Neumayer Station is the monitoring of the local, regional and global seismic activities. As the global seismographic monitoring network is rather wide-meshed in the southern hemisphere, especially in Antarctica, seismographic recordings at Neumayer Station (including also the broad band station SNAA at the South African base Sanae IV) contribute substantially to seismological research in this region. Onset times of first arrivals and other seismic phases of detected earthquakes are determined regularly and reported to the National Earthquake Information Center (NEIC), USA. The investigation of the local and regional seismicity is a subject of special interest of the observatory program. Antarctica is not that aseismic as it was generally believed. Monitoring this seismicity since many years proofed the existence of some distinct seismically active areas in Dronning Maud Land. These results will contribute to a more detailed investigation of of neotectonics in this area. Geomagnetism: The long term recordings of the geomagnetic field and its time dependent variations are further continued. Absolute hourly means of the three field components and the total field intensity are reported on a monthly schedule to the World Data Center (WDC) in Copenhagen, Denmark. The results of these measurements are included into the development of the International Geomagnetic Reference Field (IGRF) which is performed by WDC. The new 3-component fluxgate system, which had been installed during summer season 2005/06 and which offers superior performance, is still in a very stable operation mode and thus will soon replace the old system. Infrasound Array I27DE (CTBT-network): I27DE is an infrasound array with nine array stations. Each station is equipped with a microbarometer and a data acquisition system. Meteorological sensors are installed at the central station. A wind-noise reducing pipe array is connected to each microbarometer. The distribution of the inlet ports to the microbarometer in a wide area ensures the suppression of wind-generated disturbances. The central array control system is installed in the seismo-acoustic observatory where recorded data are retrieved and from where the stations are supplied with electrical power. The infrasound data are transmitted continuously in near real time with a maximum delay of 5 minutes to the International Data Center (IDC) in Vienna, Austria, sharing the permanent satellite link between the Neumayer base and AWI. All wind-noise reducing pipes and instrument boxes at all array stations had been dug out and serviced for another year around operation in December 2007.

Project Name/Number: Impact of climate change on Antarctic ecosystems –focusing on benthic algae
Discipline: marine biology, biochemistry, ecology
Principal Investigator: Katharina Zacher (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: Although proven to be of great importance to the shallow-water ecosystem, Antarctic benthic algae communities have rarely been studied. The results of our planned experiments help to understand more about the trophic links and dynamics of the Antarctic ecosystem under a changing environment. The focus of the study was on macro- and microalgal communities and young developmental stages (as they are shown to be most susceptible to anthropogenic stresses). The planned field-experiments with spores and germlings are the first attempts to detect differences in germination due to UV radiation in the Antarctic region and there is a general lack of information about the long-term succession of algal communities in Antarctica.

Project Name/Number: JASPER
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Jörg Hartmann (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: This airborne campaign was based at Rothera and conducted in close cooperation with the British Antarctic Survey (BAS). The AWI-aircraft Polar 5 flew a total of 12 science flights (70h), 2 test/comparison flights (3h) and one tsunami evacuation (2h). Of the science flights, 13hours have been for the EUFAR project ALISA of Timo Vihma. Most flights went over the ice-covered Weddell Sea. The comparison flight in close formation with the Twin Otter showed an excellent agreement in the wind vector measurements and the derived turbulence quantitites (e.g. momentum flux). For the energy and moisture exchange between the atmosphere and the ice covered ocean, leads and polynias play an important role. This is documented by many modelling studies, but only very few observations exist yet. Therefore three missions have been flown to the Ronne Polynia, one of them together with the BAS Twin Otter to measure simultaneously the boundary layer modification and heat transfer over the polynia. The data suggest a significant heat flux to the atmosphere and will form a basis for simulation with a mesoscale model. In recent years we have developed methods to represent the surface roughness of sea ice in atmospheric models. These parameterisations have been based on measurements over moderately rough arctic sea ice and take ridge height and distribution into account. They are well proven for applications in simulations of flow situations in the northern polar ocean. To test and prove if they can be applied for antarctic conditions, low-level legs were flown during 5 flights over the sea ice in the Weddell Sea. Two flights were flown in a close formation with the BAS Twin Otter to measure radiation above and below clouds, while the Twin Otter flew inside the cloud to record the particle structure. Photo surveys over shelf and over sea ice have been flown on two days to gather data for satellite SAR image interpretation.

Project Name/Number: LIMPICS
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Olaf Eisen (AWI, University of Heidelberg)
Main Activity/ Remarks: The main scientific goal of the expedition was to perform a seismic reflection survey from the surface at the Halfvarryggen ice dome, a candidate for the upcoming IPICS 2k/40k ice cores. On the technical side the goals were to test an improved drilling device for shot holes and conventional vibroseis truck for seismic data acquisition, so far never employed in Antarctica. Due to the three-week delay of the cargo feeder the whole expedition plan had to be re-arranged. The whole team of ten people split up into two groups. One group of five stayed at Neumayer Station III and performed test measurements with the vibroseis truck. After successful establishing a operational set-up with the vibroseis truck and a snow streamer, two profiles were shot. One profile runs from PALAOA to Neumayer Station III, the other one from Neumayer Station III several kilometres to the south (see figure). For comparison several shots with conventional explosive seismics were carried out near PALAOA and south of Neumayer. At PALAOA, two calibrated hydrophones in the water layer benath the ice shelf enable a comparison of impinging seismic energy depending on the source type. These measurements will help to improve the frequency-dependent characterisation of seismic properties of ice. The second part of the LIMPICS team set off for a five-day field trip to Halvfarryggen. At the ice dome the internal structure imaged with airborne radar indicates upwarping internal layers, so-called isochrone arches or Raymond bumps. Modelling studies indicate that the crystal orientation fabric (COF) at larger depths at ice domes should be highly anisotropic. As changes in COF also change the impedance contrast such changes should be detectable with seismic methods. Indeed, it was possible to detect reflecting ice-internal seismic layers near the dome of Halvfarryggen. This indicates that the crystal orientation fabric at the dome is highly anisotropic, in the vertical as well as in the lateral direction. This finding is of importance for ice-flow modelling of Halvfarryggen. For comparison, ground-penetrating radar surveys were performed at low frequencies around the dome to characterize the spatial extent of the Raymond bump underneath the three ice divides, which meet near the dome. The radar surveys were accompanied by kinematic GPS measurements with one reference station and the point DML111 to improve a local digital elevation model. In addition to the radar and seismic studies, several other tasks were performed at Halvfarryggen, which include servicing of the IMAU AWS11, drilling of one 8-m firn core and static GPS measurements of existing poles for determination of surface velocity. Moreover, the 120 km traverse from Neumayer Station III to Halvfarryggen was measured with the low-frequency radar as well.

Project Name/Number: Population ecology and migration of Antarctic Skuas
Discipline: biology, ecology
Principal Investigator: Hans-Ulrich Peter (University of Jena, Germany)
Main Activity/ Remarks: Aim of the project “Current environmental situation and management proposals for the Fildes Peninsula Region” is the elaboration of an updated standardized assessment of fauna and flora of the Fildes Peninsula and Ardley Island with focus on birds and seals. The reaction of animals and plants on different forms of human impact as well as any considerable environmental changes were analyzed to keep the scientific data base up to date and usable during the process of discussion on international level about an anticipated ASMA. Within this project the monitoring of penguins (Pygoscelis spec.) and Southern Giant Petrels (Macronectes giganteus) was continued. These long-term datasets date back to the 1980ies. The first aim of the project “Population ecology and migration of Antarctic Skuas” on Fildes Peninsula was the continuation of the long-term project on the population ecology of both skua species and hybrid pairs. The distribution of skua nests was mapped, adults and chicks were banded and the breeding success of chicks was determined. Skuas are closely related species from the Northern and Southern hemisphere which overwinter on the oceans. Since it is difficult to distinguish these, reliable data on the temporal and spatial migration patterns are absent. In the season 2008/09 in cooperation with BAS GLS-Loggers were attached on breeding birds to investigate the winter migration of both species. In January and February 2010 these loggers were removed and the data processed. They provide a much more detailed picture of Brown skuas in the overwintering area of the South Atlantic and the migration route of South polar skuas to the Arctic. Additionally we were using GPS-Loggers to follow the feeding flights of both species.

Project Name/Number: Recent climate variability in the region of the Antarctic Peninsula
Discipline: geosciences, glaciology
Principal Investigator: Hanno Meyer (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: The Chilean-German expedition „Antarctic Peninsula 2010 – API 2010“ took place from 10 January – 15 February, 2010 as a cooperation between the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI), Potsdam (PI: Dr. H. Meyer) and the Magallanes-University (UMAG) in Punta Arenas, Chile (PI: Dr. C. Cárdenas). Main objective of this field campaign was to select a suitable location for a medium depth ice core of 150 m at the Plateau Laclavere, Antarctic Peninsula (API) and to contribute to the understanding of the glaciological system of the API and on King George Island, regions highly susceptible to climate change. For this purpose, a consortium with glaciological and geophysical expertise has been formed. The AWI team was responsible for glaciological work including snow pits, shallow firn cores (10-15 m), snow stratigraphy, physical properties of the ice as well as stable isotope studies with the retrieved material at the Isotope Laboratory in Potsdam. Two Antarctic scientific bases were visited as logistical starting points for the glaciological field activities: 1. Chilean Escudero base, and 2. Uruguayan Artigas base, both King George Island (KGI). Finally, with the help of the Chilean air force, we were able to reach Plateau Laclavere, API by Twin Otter. One firn core of 11.02 m depth was retrieved on Plateau Laclavere, Antarctic Peninsula at an altitude of about 1050 m asl. This site has never been visited by men before. The retrieved material allows assessing the climate history of the last couple of years, and together with the material from 2008/2009, the so called the isotope „altitude effect“. The retrieved material has reached Germany in May and has already been prepared for physical properties (DEP, density) and stable isotope measurements. We are very grateful to the Chilean Airforce (FACH), especially Comandante Madina, for great help in preparation of the expedition to Plateau Laclavere. Additionally, several snow pits were sampled on King George Island and the precipitation series at KGI and O’Higgins base were continued one additional year within this project .

Project Name/Number: RV Polarstern - Leg ANT XXVI-3
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Karsten Gohl (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: Scientific activities report (PIs and affiliations in brackets): Since the last glacial maximum, the West Antarctic Ice-Sheet (WAIS) has experienced dramatic volume changes within short periods of time. The WAIS has the potential to increase the global sea-level by 3-5 m. Hence, studies are urgently required to show if these short-term variations can be compared to volume changes in the older and younger geological past which will provide parameters for prediction models. With this high-priority objective in mind, we began the cruise leg ANT-XXVI/3 of RV Polarstern in Wellington (New Zealand) on 29 January 2010 and arrived in Punta Arenas (Chile) on 5 April 2010. The expedition had primarily geophysical and geological objectives with the goal to decipher the pre-glacial and glacial development of West Antarctica. Oceanographic, geodetic, biogeochemistry and plankton-biological projects as well as a program of marine mammal and bird observations were also conducted. The geoscientific program began with seismic pre-site surveys on proposed IODP drill sites along the transit from New Zealand to the northeastern Ross Sea [Gohl, AWI]. Continued seismic profiling on the continental rise from the eastern Ross Sea along the continental margin off Marie Byrd Land connected the existing seismic grid of the Ross Sea to the profiles in the Amundsen Sea Embayment in order to correlate the stratigraphy for reconstructing a circum-Antarctic paleobathymetry [Gohl, AWI]. The seismic data are also used with the addition of helicopter-magnetic surveying [Gohl, AWI] for studies on the Late Cretaceous continental break-up between New Zealand and Marie Byrd Land. Favourable sea-ice conditions enabled seismic and bathymetric surveying [Schenke, AWI], geological sampling [Kuhn, AWI], geothermal heat-flow measurements [Gohl, AWI] and oceanographic measurements [Schröder, AWI] in the western Wrigley Gulf near Hobbs Coast. Arriving in the main working area, the Amundsen Sea Embayment, seismic and Parasound profiling, bathymetric surveying and helicopter-magnetic surveying continued [Gohl & Kuhn, AWI]. The unusual ice-free conditions in Pine Island Bay this season allowed more extended investigations in this area than previously planned. The knowledge of the composition and properties of sediments and basement provides important parameters for the reconstruction of the tectonic evolution as well as the glacial-interglacial cyclicity from early glaciation until the last glacial maximum. Cores of Quaternary sediments were collected from the Amundsen Sea Embayment for analyses aimed to date past ice-shelf retreats [Kuhn, AWI]. Temperature sensors were deployed in the top sediments to derive geothermal heat-flow [Gohl, AWI]. Recently discovered deep-sea corals were sampled from the Marie Byrd Seamounts [Gutjahr, Univ. Bristol]. Hard-rock outcrops along the Marie Byrd Land coast, the Hudson Mts and Thurston Island were visited for sampling rocks for cosmogenic nuclide analysis aimed at dating the ice-sheet retreat history and to reconstruct the denudation and uplift history of Marie Byrd Land via fission-track analysis [Spiegel, Univ. Bremen]. GPS data from on rock outcrop sites measured four years after the initial measurements will be used to derive horizontal and vertical crustal motion [Scheinert, TU Dresden]. Oceanographic processes have been proposed as likely causes for the presently occurring accelerated glacier retreats in Pine Island Bay. The oceanographic program with CTD casts, but also the data from the geothermal heat-flux sensor, provided new and important data for studying the distribution of Circumpolar Deep Water and the oceanographic dynamics on the continental shelves of the Amundsen Sea Embayment and Wrigley Gulf [Schröder, AWI]. Methane production during the phytoplankton bloom is a process not well understood in the Southern Ocean. Numerous water samples were collected for methane gas analyses. Samples of Antarctic phytoplankton were collected to study their climate induced changes and biodiversity [Damm, AWI]. Observations of marine mammals and birds took place during the entire cruise leg. The ship-borne thermographic system for the automatic detection of whales was also thoroughly tested [Boebel, AWI]. A film team documented the expedition for an Arte film production on polar climate and paleo-climate research. The project OCEANET did not take place on this cruise leg. Scientific equipment: On RV POLARSTERN: seismic reflection equipment, ocean-bottom seismometers, gravitymeter, magnetometer, multibeam bathymetry (Hydrosweep), sediment-echography (Parasound), piston corer, gravity corer, grab sampler, multi-corer, dredge, CTD, water sampler, infrared observation system On helicopter: heli-magnetometer, heli-CTD On land/ice sites: GPS recording equipment

Project Name/Number: The geochemical response of sedimentary archives to rapid recent glacier retreat at the Western Antarctic Peninsula (WAP): from source to sink
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Hans-Jürgen Brumsack (University of Oldenburg)
Main Activity/ Remarks: Along several transects the main meltwater streams draining into Potter Cove, King George Island, were sampled monthly (January – March 2010) in order to characterize the particulate (SPM) and dissolved load of glacial effluents draining into the cove at different times by inorganic geochemical methods (major and minor elements, nutrients). Labile parameters (alkalinity, nitrite and ammonia) were directly measured at Jubany Station by spectrophotometry. To investigate the extent of meltwater drainage and SPM input 30 surface sediment cores (< 30 cm) were taken on a 400 m grid by gravity and push corer (January to February 2010). Based on provenance analyses we will document whether the material introduced into this bay is evenly distributed and uniform in composition or if specific source areas can be distinguished by their chemical signature. For this propose also soils and rocks from different sites at Potter Peninsula were sampled during the same period to get more information about the geochemistry of the supply area and its current state of chemical weathering. Additionally, it will be studied whether the reported increase in SPM may be quantified by determining sediment accumulation rates with 210Pb. Furthermore, in March 2010 five longer sediment cores (30-50 cm) were taken from the deposition centres in the middle of the inner cove and near the glacier that may serve as archives for the climatic and paleoenvironmental development of this area during the last century. Inorganic geochemical proxies may document the gradual glacier retreat in Potter Cove and may be possibly applied on new and already existing core material from Maxwell Bay and on lake cores from the Fildes Peninsula. The results of this study will contribute to assess whether the documented temperature increase and associated glacier retreat at WAP is reflected in the sedimentary record and weather such episodes have occurred within the Holocene before. This subproject, which is part of the DFG (German Research Foundation) financed project “Rapid climate change at the western Antarctic Peninsula: chemical flux changes and environmental consequences”, will be continued in the following summer season.

Project Name/Number: The impact of environmental change on the Antarctic fish Pleuragramma antarticum
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Katja Mintenbeck (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: The main aim of this project was the capture of different developmental stages of the Antarctic silverfish, Pleuragramma antarcticum, for feeding experiments. The notothenioid fish P. antarcticum is a key species in the Antarctic marine food web and provides a major trophic link between small sized zooplankton and the systems top predators. The capability of this pelagic shoal fish species to cope with changes in food availability and composition driven by climate change is completely unknown, and was therefore in the focus of this project. The upper 30m of the water column were fished mainly during the night and early morning hours (when fish were expected to ascent to the surface layers for feeding) by means of a 1x1m pelagic net, a 50x4m purse seine and a Nansen net (plankton net). Not a single specimen of P. antarcticum was caught. Whether this failure was due to a general absence during the sampling period or inappropriate gear remains open. Only on one occasion a single postlarvae of the channichthyid icefish Chaenocephalus aceratus was caught in the pelagial in the entrance of the Potter Cove. Due to the lack of P. antarcticum, alternative feeding experiments were carried out with the Black rockcod, Notothenia coriiceps (Nothenioidei), a demersal notothenioid fish species which is common in the Potter Cove. Live individuals (kindly provided by the groups Mark/Strobel and Barrera-Oro/Moreira) were caught by means of baited traps and trammel net. In 15 individuals preferences for particular food items were investigated by offering different kinds of food to the fish. 15 more individuals were used to test for the effect of food composition on gut evacuation time and assimilation efficiency. In the latter experiment samples of offered food and fish faeces were taken and stored deep-frozen for later analyses of elemental composition. After ending of the experiments fish were tagged for identification in case of re-capture, and released at the location of capture. The results from these experiments will provide insight into the impact of climate change driven alterations in availability and composition of macroalgae and zoobenthos on condition and survival potential of the most abundant demersal fish species on the Potter Cove.

Permit Number:
Number of people: Permitted to enter  6   That actually entered: 
Permit Period: From:  15 Nov 2009   To:  31 Mar 2010
Purpose: Purpose of the project was the continuation of the long-term project on the population ecology of both skua species and hybrid pairs. The distribution of skua nests was mapped, adults and chicks were banded and the breeding success of chicks was determined. Furthermore, GLS-Loggers were attached on breeding birds to investigate the winter migration of both species. They were removed in January and February 2010. GPS-Loggers were used to follow the feeding flights of South polar skuas and Brown skuas. The monitoring of penguins (Pygoscelis spec.) and Southern Giant Petrels (Macronectes giganteus) was continued. (scientific leader: Hans-Ulrich Peter, University of Jena)
