Project Name/Number: Activities at Neumayer Station III: Antarctic Fast Ice Network in the Atka Bay (AFIN)
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: M. Nicolaus (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: The Antarctic Fast Ice Network (AFIN): Starting with the wintering period from 2011 to 2012, the measurements included manual and automatic measurements of snow and sea-ice thicknesses, sea-ice temperature and weather data. Finally, the measurement program should lead to establishing a new observatory, the Atka Bay Sea-ice Observatory (ABSO). Data collected under AFIN include ice and snow thicknesses, freeboard, dates of fast-ice formation, and (intermittent and final) breakout. Auxiliary data collected include meteorological, such as air temperature and pressure, and oceanic parameters, such as water temperature and salinity. Data collected under AFIN will be available to members within the AFIN network after quality control. AFIN data will be available to the wider scientific community under the Antarctic Sea Ice Processes & Climate (ASPeCt) data library within the SCAR Physical Sciences program.

Project Name/Number: Activities at Neumayer Station III: SPOT (Single Penguin Observation & Tracking)
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: B. Fabry (Uni Erlangen), D. Zitterbart (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: This project focussedd on the reorganization process in penguin huddles and the implications for social thermoregulation. We installed a remote-operated penguin observatory including hard- and software for fast image acquisition and real-time processing. The observatory is capable of detecting the whole huddle, as well as tracking the movements of thousands of individual penguins throughout the winter. An accurate count of animals within the colony and the size of individual animals was recorded. Our data will help to estimate how the increasing environmental strain such as ongoing climate changes, thinning sea ice and reduced krill availability, is affecting Emperor penguins.

Project Name/Number: Activities at Neumayer Station III: Volcano
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: A. Eckstaller (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: The evaluation of a detailed aeromagnetic flight survey covering a 40 * 40 km area around Neumayer Station a distinct magnetic anomaly pattern was detected approx. 10 km SSW of the base. The anomaly shows an almost circular pattern of approx. 10 km diameter and lays in the western part of a pronounced anomaly belt extending almost parallel to the coast line. It is supposed that this anomaly is caused by an old volcano which erupted some 120 millions of years ago during the breakup of Gondwanaland. In May 2013 we started a small seismological field experiment and consecutively installed 3 autonomously operating seismographic stations on two crossing lines over the center of the anomaly. with a station spacing of approx. 5 km. We would like to examine whether we this volcanic structure can be seen and described in more details by seismological means, for example by the study of receiver functions or by comparison of slowness and travel time residuals. During the summer campaign 2013/2014 additional surface bound gravimetric and magnetic measurements were carried out along both profiles. We intend to continue this field experiment also in 2014 with two more 3-station profiles intersecting the 2013 profile arrangement.

Project Name/Number: CHOICE@Neumayer
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Alexander Choukér, Ludwig-Maximillians-Universität München
Main Activity/ Remarks: „The effects of long-term confinement on stress- and immune response and thus on the health of the expedition participants on the Antarctic research station Neumayer III“ The overarching purpose of this field study (CHOICE@Neumayer) is to determine the interaction between „stress and immune system“ and its impact on the health of overwintering crews at the Neumayer III base, Antarctica. This investigation is closely linked with previous and ongoing scientific studies in Antarctica (Concordia, acronym CHOICE) as well as in Space (ISS, acronym IMMUNO). First results of previous and present studies, respectively, are indicating significant differences of the immune systems´ performance, as a function of the environmental stressors affecting both emotional, perceived stress and biological reactions as indicated with elevated stress hormone release. The international research team under the lead of the Hospital of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich (Department of Anesthesiology) aims to investigate on Neumayer III a) how immune system responds to an isolation and confinement period for several month and which stress-dependent, neuroendocrine and metabolic changes may occur and b) how this can impact on the health of the participants. In February 2013, examinations of all nine subjects of the wintering over crew were successfully performed to run the 2nd CHOICE@Neumayer observation period. To ensure best operational quality of sample handling, a „wet run“ and training of the physician Dr. Fiedel for the optimization of experimental procedures took place on-site at the base. The overwintering crew was examined within one week (three volunteers per day) in February. In this course, stress questionnaires needed to be filled in and blood-, urine- and saliva samples were taken once or over a 24 h period and processed according to the study manual. These steps included blood count determination, centrifugation, aliquoting of samples, co-incubation of whole blood with differential antigen compositions, incubation at 37°C for 48hrs followed by asservation of the sample supernatants. These analyses have since then implemented, monthly until December 2013, by Dr. Fiedel and the crew. After the completion of the winterover, samples will be returned frozen and a detailed analysis of all samples will be performed either in the laboratories in Munich or in Houston. Particularly immunological changes in the specific and non-specific immune system are of special interest. So far, the study protocol could be realized in time and with great acceptance by all participants in the CHOICE@Neumayer investigation.

Project Name/Number: Coldest Firn: Drilling of shallow ice core (max. 200 m) and surface pit studies
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Sepp Kipfstuhl, Alfred Wegener Instiut
Main Activity/ Remarks: During the season 2012/13 a total of 12 shallow ice cores between 60 m to 200 m in length were drilled at Kohnen to study the firnification process (densification and air entrapment) and the evolution of climatic and environmental signals in relationship to the densification. Bulk density and electric conductivity (DEP) were measured using the old trenches built for the EPICA-DML deep ice core. Two 200 m cores were retrieved on the ice divide connecting Kohnen and Dome Fuji (CoFi2: 75°07.926S, 15°24.473E; CoFi4: 77°47.636S, 31°54.315E). At CoFi4, the former Japanese site called DK190, an accumulation stake farm was re-measured and a data logger system saved. Because less plane capacity than originally planned was available later in the season only two cores could be drilled and the cores had to left at their drill sites to be picked up during the next season. Temperature profiles were measured on selected boreholes. At Kohnen a comprehensive surface sampling study was performed to learn more about the evolution of snow pack at cold low accumulation sites on the East-Antarctic plateau. Stable water isotopes of the moisture in the air above the snow surface and in the firn were measured to compare the isotopic signal of the moisture and the snow deposited at the surface over the entire season. Field camps: A field camp was set up at CoFi2 and CoFi4 to drill shallow ice cores between 13 January and 27 January 2013. Equipment and the four scientists were flown and moved between the sites by ALCI planes. Due to a reduced plane capacity at the end of the season the ice had to be left. Camp gear and drill equipment are left at CoFi4 to continue in the 2014/15 season further east.

Project Name/Number: Current environmental situation of the Fildes Peninsula Region
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Dr. Hans-Ulrich Peter, Jena University Germany
Main Activity/ Remarks: Aim of the project “Current environmental situation and management proposals for the Fildes Peninsula Region” is the continuation of an updated standardized assessment of fauna and flora of the Fildes Peninsula and Ardley Island with focus on birds and seals. 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.) together with T.Hermann, Montreal, Canada and J-H.Kim, Seoul, Korea ,was continued. 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.

Project Name/Number: Dallmann Laboratory (Carlini Station) King George Island
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Petra Qulillfeldt, Universität Giessen Michael Staubwasser, Universität Köln, Sabine Kasten, Afred Wegener Institut Gunter Menz, Universität Bonn
Main Activity/ Remarks: During the last campaign research was centered on the influence of global and local climate change on selected biota and the whole ecosystem. In particular, the effects of UV radiation, enhanced CO2 concentration and of climate-induced intensified input of meltwater on marine communities were studied. The latter research activity is a major part in the ESF project IMCOAST: “Climate change Impact in the Coastal Environment”. IMCOAST is an interdisciplinary activity, linking causes and effects within the presently observed rapid climate change scenario in the marine coastal environment of the Maritime Antarctic. IMCOAST builds directly on IPY-34 clicOPEN (climate change in coastal areas of the Antarctic Peninsula), and is planned as a high-resolution investigation of the hierarchical chain of effects produced by regional warming, the retreat of tide water glaciers on the coastal sedimentary environment, patterns of deposition and sediment transport to the open ocean. Effects of changes in coastal run-off will be linked to the observed shifts in the coastal biosphere, including experimental cause-effect studies of water column and benthic systems.

Project Name/Number: Geophysics Observatory at Neumayer-III and remote seismographic stations
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Antje Schlömer, Alfred Wegener Institut Dr. Eberhard Kohlberg, Alfred Wegener Institut
Main Activity/ Remarks: a) Seismology The primary objective of the seismographic observations at Neumayer-III (NM) is to complement the worldwide network of seismographic monitoring stations in the southern hemisphere. Special interests focus on the detection of local and regional earthquakes within Antarctica. Long term monitoring of regional seismicity over many years may eventually allow a rather detailed mapping of seismic active regions within the Antarctic plate. This will contribute to a better understanding of current neotectonic processes in Antartica. The local seismographic network at Neumayer-III Station comprises the Geophysics Observatory VNA1 near NM itself and 2 remote stations VNA2 and VNA3 on the ice rises Halvfar Ryggen and Søråsen, resp. Still unique in Antarctica is the small aperture detection array with 15 vertical seismometers placed on three concentric rings with a total diameter of almost 2 km at station VNA2. This array is a powerful tool for monitoring local and regional seismicity. Additionally we operate some more unattended seismographic broadband stations in Dronning Maud Land. These stations are located at the Russion base Novolazarevskaya, at Kohnen Station, near Weigel Nunatak and at the Swedish summer base Svea. The seismic broadband station at SanaeIV is also included into the larger seismographic network. Additional recordings from seismic stations in and around Antarctica are retrieved from internet and are very helpful for reliable localizations of Antarctic earthquakes. As in previous years both remote stations VNA2 and VNA3 were serviced during austral season 2012/13 by members of the wintering team and a summer season team leader. Substantial efforts were made to improve the 12V DC power supply at both remote stations. Experience showed that it is absolutely necessary to heat the batteries when excess power ist available. By this charging the batteries is substantially improved and higher netto capacities are achieved. Heating the batteries with excess power from the windturbines during days with high wind speeds prevents high spinning of the windturbines and thus reduce the risk of damages. Servicing Kohnen Station and Weigel Nunatak was carried out by a team member of the Kohnen traverse team. Data retrieval at the Novolazarevskaya seismic station was made by a memebr of the Polar-6 survey team. Svea seismic station was checked by Finnish and Swedish colleagues during at few days stay at their summer camp. b) Geomagnetism The new Geomagnetic Observatory at Neumayer-III was built during January and February 2009 and the routine observations were carried on at the new site with just a rather short data gap. During summer season 2011/2012 a second 3-component fluxgate magnetometer was installed. It is a standard FGE fluxgate sensor which is the current worldwide observatory standard. This second sensor was placed on top of a deeply frozen in, stable pillar outside the measuring hut. The geomagnetic observatory comprises now a NS orientated STL 3-component sensor and a second FGE sensor oriented in magnetic North direction. A GSM-19 Overhauser proton-magnetometer is used for recording total intensity. All systems run at a sample rate of 1 second. For better absolute measurements of the field components also a second declinometer was installed on a stable pillar outside the measuring container housing. These measurements are now free from vertical deflections by walking around the tripod which sometimes cause some reading errors. Continuous routine recording of the second system started in July 2013. We are applying to become a member of Intermagnet, an international geomagnetic union. With the new FGE magnetometer we hopefully will fulfill the Intermagnet requirements for high data quality. During summer season 2012/2013 parts of the side walls of the observatory's firn cavern had to be reshaped by cutting out of approx. half meter. This was necessary because the side walls are slowly bulging out with time due to the flow and deformation of the firn. c) Contiunuous GPS recordings are now available sind beginning of July 2012. A 2-band Ashtec Z-12 receiver was re-installed with its antenna on the roof of Neumayer-III. Converted data in Rinex format are available on request and can in future be downloaded from a web interface. These GPS recordings have been relaunched because they provide valuable informations for higher atmosphere reasearch.

Project Name/Number: IceCube Neutrino Observatory
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Dr. Rolf Nahnhauer, DESY, Zeuthen for Geman participants
Main Activity/ Remarks: The construction of the IceCube observatory at the South Pole has been finished in December 2010. Since then 5160 Optical Module installed at 86 strings distributed over a square kilometer at a depth between 1450 and 2450 m in the ice are ready to observe the faint light flashes created eventually by neutrinos passing the earth and interacting in the ice. On the ice surface 80 stations of the IceTop detector register air shower particles created by charged cosmic rays in the atmosphere. Since May 2011 IceCube is taking data using all its optical modules. The detector performance is excellent with about 92% clean up‐time for useful physics searches. Each year about 100000 neutrino events from interactions in the Earth atmosphere have been collected. Employing DeepCore, the densely instrumented inner core detector of IceCube with its lower energy threshold of about 10 GeV, these data are used to do particle physics and search for neutrino oscillations as well as dark matter . At the international conference “Neutrino 2012” in Kyoto a first result of the neutrino oscillation search was presented. The disappearance of muon neutrinos in the atmospheric neutrino data could be proven with 5 sigma significance. Today precise measurements of the corresponding oscillation parameters are determined and near to publication. The key task of IceCube is however to look for high energetic (1TeV‐1PeV) extraterrestrial neutrinos arriving from cosmic sources like supernovae, Gamma ray bursts and active galactic nuclei or extraterrestrial neutrinos existing as diffuse background radiation. In several searches the sensitivity of IceCube is already a factor 1000 larger than that of previous experiments of this type. Searching for ultra‐high energetic cascade like event topologies in the detector, two events with PeV energies have been found in the 2010‐2011 data sets. The origin of these events is still under debate, but is very unlikely due to neutrinos produced in the Earth atmosphere . Triggered by this observation a tailored starting track analysis found additional 26 neutrino events at slightly lower energies, whichalso seem mostly incompatible with atmospheric origin. Now data from 2012 are under investigation which will help to understand and classify the present observations. Extensions of IceCube in the low and high neutrino energy range are under discussion and partly already under prototype construction. A next generation experiment will however be data taking on a larger scale only at the end of this decade. An activity of DESY together with universities in Kiel and Potchefstroom (South Africa) is the study of cosmic rays in correlation with Sun activities and geomagnetic variations. The installation of a muon telescope and a neutron monitor both on board of the “Polarstern” and at the Neumeyer station deliver a continuous data stream which is transferred to the home institutes by e‐mail each day.

Project Name/Number: Investigation of temperature distribution and egg rotation from breeding Emperor penguins
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: D. Zitterbart (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: The aim of the project was to study the temperature distribution and rotation frequency of Emperor penguin eggs during breeding . In a previous investigation, we have observed a coordinated periodic movement of all animals within one Penguin Huddles . The animals move about 10 cm in about 2-3 steps every 30-60 seconds. One possible purpose of this coordinated regu-lar movements a uniform breeding. To test this hypothesis , we had designed egg dummies equipped with 6 temperature sensors and two accelerometers, and radio frequency identification . Ten of these egg dummies to be beeded were distributed near the colony and later adopted by free male penguins. After the end of the breeding season, the dummies were collected and read out the data. When spreading and collecting the dummies , the colony had not been entered.

Project Name/Number: LIMPICS ANT 2012/13, reflection seismics
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Coen Hofstede, Alfred Wegener Institut
Main Activity/ Remarks: The project’s goal was to obtain the deep vibroseismic data at Kohnen station to deduce the distribution of the crystal orientation fabric (COF) as a function of depth and compare it to the in-situ deep ice-core data, radar analysis and explosive seismic data for future applications; furthermore, to deduce the properties of the bed underneath the ice sheet. To this end a vibroseismic survey in AVO (amplitude variation with offset) configuration along two perpendicular profiles was deployed. This was complemented by two profiling surveys with the p-wave vibrator (EnviroVibe). The vibroseis truck operated technically well on the soft snow surface. The vibroseis signals penetrated all the way to the bottom of the ice sheet and into the ground. However, some problems arose because of the comparable small contact area of the employed Mattracks, so that the vehicle burried itself into the snow. This made it necessary to salvage the vehicle several times with a PistenBully. In addition, a small microvibrator was operated with a high-resolution snow streamer for testing purpposes.

Project Name/Number: Long term gamma dose rate measurements under extreme conditions
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Dr. Roger Luff, Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz, Rendsburg
Main Activity/ Remarks: The probe installed at Neumeyer is the standard BfS probe equipped with 2 Geiger-Müller tubes for high and low count rates. It measures automatically and continuously the environmental gamma dose rate. It registers the radiation to get the terrestrial as well as the cosmic component of the gamma radiation. Moreover the probe measures the temperature and the air pressure in the probe housing for quality insurance. Due to the extreme weather conditions (temperatures below -55°C) one of the goals is to find out, if the hardware developed by BfS can be used under these extreme conditions and to find out what kind of problems occur if it does not work to find new kind of “error responses” from the system. The other goal is the detection of the radioactive flux from the cosmic radiation originating from the sun and from outer space. It is subject to a complex process of interaction with the earth’s magnetic field and atmosphere. Most of this radiation is attenuated and only a small fraction reaches the earth’s surface as ionizing radiation. At ground level, it contributes to the total measured ambient dose rate between 15%-50%. It is modulated by atmospheric pressure, the solar cycle and, occasionally, by solar flare events. Dose rate probes of similar response to cosmic radiation at different latitudes will help to understand the characteristics of the temporal variability of cosmic radiation and to better separate these effects from other environmental parameters.

Project Name/Number: PASATA-PASsive Acoustic Tracking of Antarctic marine mammals
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Dr. Ilse Van Opzeeland
Main Activity/ Remarks: 1. Project aim Aim of the PASATA project was to deploy arrays of time-synchronized passive acoustic recorders to localize vocalizing marine mammals. Alongside the passive acoustic recordings, on-ice and underwater camera systems were deployed near breathing holes as a pilot project to obtain additional visual information on Weddell seal behavioral activity. 2. Passive acoustic data Recordings Two hydrophone arrays were installed on the sea-ice of Atka Bay in the ANTLAND12/13 season: the large passive acoustic hydrophone array (hereafter referred to as large array) aimed to localize calling pack-ice pinniped species (i.e. leopard seals, Hydrurga leptonyx, Ross seals, Ommatophoca rossii, crabeater seals, Lobodon carcinophaga) to obtain information on their location and hence the ice habitat they occupy. This large array consisted of four autonomous passive acoustic recorders (Song Meter SM2+) with a hydrophone sensor deployed through a drilled hole in the sea ice and were installed as a line array near the sea ice edge. The second, smaller hydrophone array (hereafter referred to as small array) consisted of four autonomous passive acoustic recorders with hydrophone sensors deployed through boreholes in the sea ice within a Weddell seal (Leptonychotes weddellii) breeding colony, located further south in the bay, just off the ice shelf. Deployments of the small and large hydrophone arrays were completed on 22 and 26 November 2012, respectively. All instruments recorded successfully, acquiring app. 16 Gb of acoustic data per recorder per day (30-min files, sample rate 96 kHz, mono, WAV). On 4 December 2012, Box D was moved from the Weddell seal colony to sea-ice station Atka 21 to form part of the large-array, which then also covered the eastern part of Atka Bay with recordings. Apart from a three-day dropout (12 – 14 December 2012) of Box C because of weather conditions not permitting battery exchange, all boxes recorded continuously since deployment. On 5 December 2013, the permit for the large hydrophone array was extended until 31 January 2013. This allowed us to use the three northernmost recorders to collect acoustic data on marine mammal acoustic behaviour before, during and after presence of the research vessel ‘Polarstern’ in the bay. The three northernmost recorders were operated until 27 December 2012 and then retrieved. All other recorders were retrieved from the sea ice by 19 December, prior to Polarstern’s arrival. In total, both arrays together collected ~3 Tb of passive acoustic data. Preliminary analyses of the data show that the recordings contain vocalizations of all four Antarctic pinniped species: Weddell, leopard, Ross and crabeater seals. First analyses of the large-array data shows considerable overlap in the acoustic signatures recorded by the various recorders, in some cases spanning inter-recorder distances of >15 km. Further processing of the data is in progress. Test signals On 14 December, test signals with clear marked onset (hammer banged on aluminium pole in water through drilled hole) were used to later on measure the precision of the large hydrophone array. Signals were produced at five locations north of the Atka station array. Due to unexpected temporary drop-out of PALAOA-S, calibration signals in the north-west part of the bay were repeated on 18 and 19 December for the small and large array, respectively. 3. Underwater and surface cameras In-air cameras On 23 November 2012, the first GoPro I camera (programmed to take 1 picture every 30 s) was installed on the sea ice to monitor seal activity at the main ice crack in the Weddell seal breeding colony. The camera was contained in a plastic bucket with lid and connected to a 100 Ah battery for power supply. On 5 December 2012, the UBA permit was extended to allow deployment of three additional surface cameras near Weddell seal aggregations. On 5 and 14 December two additional surface cameras (Pentax and Go Pro II) were deployed. In total 1430 hours of on-ice footage were collected. Some of the footage has been processed into time-lapse videos with integrated meteorological data, showing that the wide-angle GoPro data are promising to monitor Weddell seal haul-out behaviour. Animal groups can be observed continuously over longer time spans, independent of weather conditions and also limiting human presence in Weddell seal colonies. Underwater cameras One underwater video camera (FishCam) was deployed in the Weddell seal breeding colony through the main tidal crack running through the area where the animals were aggregated. One further underwater video camera (GoPro II) was deployed ~30m from the breathing hole of one of the Weddell seal aggregations (9 animals) through a borehole to collect further underwater video footage. The underwater GoPro produced 19 hours of underwater video recordings in total before the system went out of order and had to be retrieved. In total, 110 hours of underwater footage were collected. Preliminary analysis of underwater footage shows most mother-pup underwater activity near the main tidal crack takes place during the evening and early morning. Future deployments of underwater cameras under closed ice planes through boreholes will require strongly light sensitive camera systems to acquire footage suitable for behavioural analyses.

Project Name/Number: Sea Ice Mass Balance influenced by Ice Shelves (SIMBIS)
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: M. Hoppmann, Alfred Wegener Institut
Main Activity/ Remarks: The main goal of the SIMBIS project is an improved understanding of Antarctic sea ice and its physical properties and processes. To reach this aim, four scientists and technicians performed a field work program on the land-fast sea ice of Atka Bay, using a variety of methods outlined below. The campaign took place between 19 November 2012 and 8 January 2013. Our investigations focused on the influence of ice shelves (particularly platelet-ice formation) and the role of snow on sea ice. Our measurements extended the ongoing monitoring of sea-ice thickness and snow depth (AFIN project). As the base of our measurement program, we conducted repeated measurements of sea-ice thickness, snow depth and properties, freeboard and platelet-layer thickness by manual drillings and continuous measurements using different EM instruments. We drilled sea-ice cores to determine various physical and biological sea-ice parameters, like temperature, salinity, density and chlorophyll-a. In addition to using a camera to visually inspect the under-ice realm, a large number of full-depth, sub-ice CTD casts were performed during the field campaign. These data are important for the detection of potential and in-situ super-cooling of water masses occurring near the Ekström Ice Shelf, which is responsible for the formation of the platelets in the water column. We recorded a large dataset of incoming, reflected and transmitted irradiances at spectral resolution at different sampling sites at Atka Bay. Using these data, we will be able to identify key processes in snow and sea-ice which lead to an alteration of the light field (most notably, light absorption by ice algae). Furthermore, we performed a large number of snow pits and snow transects to compare these data to TerraSAR-X radar images regularly recorded throughout the campaign. By doing so, we hope to contribute to the question which snow properties affect the backscatter of satellite-based radar signals, and how these can be detected by remote sensing. Finally, several autonomous measuring stations were deployed on the sea-ice, namely a weather station, a spectral radiation setup, sea-ice mass balance buoys and an eddy-correlation station, to record high-resolution time-series of atmospheric and sea-ice parameters. These instruments were retrieved at the end of the campaign.

Project Name/Number: Sources and reaction pathways of soluble Fe from the Western Antarctic Peninsula to the Southern Ocean
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Prof. Dr. Michael Staubwasser, Institut für Geologie und Mineralogie der Universität zu Köln Dr. Sabine Kassten, Alfred Wegener Institut, Bremerhaven
Main Activity/ Remarks: The objective of this project is to identify sources of soluble Fe that is brought into the Southern Ocean. The Southern Ocean in general is a so-called High Nutrient Low Chlorophyll (HNLC) region, where Fe-supply drives the primary productivity. Ocean Islands such as King George Island, however, supply high amounts of soluble Fe. The mechanism of this supply is not yet clear. The Fe might be introduced via glacier melting, glacial outwash and erosion of terrestrial material or early diagenetic processes in the marine sediments (dissolution of reactive Fe-oxides, diffusion of soluble Fe back into the water column, re-precipitation/suspension and accumulation of Fe-oxides at the sediment surface). We use Fe isotopes to reveal the pathways responsible for the Fe-input into Potter Cove, Maxwell Bay, and adjacent areas. During the last campaign in January-March 2013 we retrieved sediment cores from 5 locations in Potter Cove of up to ~45 cm length. These cores (4 per station) were used for pore water and sediment sampling. Part of the geochemical analyses (PO42-, Fe2+, NH4+, NO2-, NO3-, alkalinity) were performed directly after sampling in the Dallmann laboratory. Samples for Fe-isotopes, sulfate, sulfide, and cation measurements were conserved and brought to the Alfred Wegener Institute and the University of Cologne for further processing and analysis. Sediment samples were taken to the AWI and the University of Cologne to perform mineralogical studies and sequential Fe extractions and Fe isotope analyses. During our stay in Carlini Station, we also took surface water and water column samples at 20 stations in Potter Cove and from meltwater streams on King George Island. All samples were filtered after return to the base. The suspended matter will be used for sequential Fe extractions and Fe isotope analyses. The filtered water will also be processed for isotope analyses. Due to the high risk of contamination, the filtration was performed in a clean tent that was installed in the base. International cooperation partners are Hernán Sala and Dr. Adrián Silva Busso (IAA) who have experience in sampling meltwater streams and investigate the glacial melting. This project is also associated to the research program IMCOAST.

Remarks: Geophysical and microbiological studies, including the deployment of ocean bottom seismometers, were conducted at the South West Indian Ridge to study tectonic and hydrothermal processes in this ultra-low spreading region (Seismology, V. Schlindwein, AWI). Thereafter, the ship steamed south for Antarctica to supply Neumayer Base. On Antarctica’s continental shelf, sediment samples were retrieved to collect foraminifera for cultivation, which allows identifying geochemical changes in the deep-sea (TRACEMETAL, J. Wollenburg, AWI). Subsequently, the ship transected the Weddell Sea, passing the Antarctic Peninsula and Elephant Island on its way to Punta Arenas. En route, between Cape Town and Punta Arenas, vertical temperature and salinity profiles were taken and vertically profiling Argo floats will be deployed in addition to recovering and redeployment of oceanographic moorings (HAFOS, O. Boebel, AWI). These efforts are part of long term observations designed to study slow changes of watermass properties and circulation. Along the entire cruise track, oceanographic, meteorological and thermographic data (MAPS, O. Boebel, AWI) were collected quasi-continuously, along with opportunistic surveys of marine mammals and birds (PI C. Joiris, BE)

Remarks: Ecosystem research (J. Gutt, AWI): Investigation of differences in structure and functioning of benthic communities on the shelves of the western Weddell Sea (East of Joinville Island), the Brandfield Strait and west of the South Shetland Islands in the Drake Passage. The field work included grab samples, dredging, non-invasive methods (sea-bed photography) and helicopter observations of whales and seals. The organisms studied ranged from microbes and meiobenthos through zooplankton to macro- and megabenthos as well as apex predators. The work on board included analyses based on samples and observations as well as experiments, e.g. on ecological turn-over rates ion the benthos. The ecological approach included measurements of physical parameters in the water column (CTD), of the bottom topography (bathymetry) and of primary production (from satellite images). The focus of the oceanographic approach (M. Schröder, AWI) was the fate of deep-water formed in the Larsen embayments and in the southernmost Weddell Sea. The corresponding water masses were investigated by a CTD probe and analyses of tracer elements. Dr. Volker Siegel Krill and Zooplankton Research (V.Siegel, Thünen Institut Institut für Seefischerei TI-SF) The general objectives of the study will be to conduct a bio-acoustic, oceanographic and net-based krill survey in the north-western Weddell Sea and Bransfield Strait to map meso-scale features of water mass structure, zooplankton constituents and abundance, and the spatial dispersion and population demography of Antarctic krill and other euphausiids species. The field work included SIMRAD EK 60 acoustic measurements and RMT1+8 plankton net samples. The organisms studied ranged from micro-zooplankton (krill larval stages through macro-zooplankton (adult krill and salps). The work on board included sorting of plankton to species level and classification of larval and maturity stages of selected species (predominately krill species). The measurements of physical parameters in the water column (CTD) was carried out by the oceanographic group (PI: M. Schröder, AWI) in close cooperation with the krill group to allow the physical description of the krill habitat. The first focus of the study was the relationship between the biology of krill species (especially Euphausia superba and E. crystallorophias) as well as other zooplankton species and the environmental conditions, sea-ice and physical oceanography of the water column. The primary objectives of the bioacoustic survey were to map the meso-scale distribution of Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) in the outflow area of the north-western Weddell Sea and to their biomass. The RMT net sampling programme collected essential krill demographic information which includes length, sex ratio, maturity stage composition, reproductive condition as well as distribution, abundance and developmental composition of the larval stages. The 2013 field season continues a long-term series of studies of the Antarctic ecosystem, designed to provide scientific support for the conservation and management of Antarctic marine fisheries as outlined by the international Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR).

Remarks: P.Lemke (AWI) WeSIES During the cruise ANT XXIX/6 an interdisciplinary research programme on sea ice, ocean and ecosystem was carried out during winter to obtain an understanding of physical and biogeochemical properties and processes during the sea ice growth season. This was the first Polarstern winter expedition in the Southern Ocean since 2006. The investigations included the role of sea ice as a reaction surface for important chemical conversion processes, and as a source or sink for climate gases. In addition biogeochemical processes in the ice and ecosystem changes in sea ice and ocean were studied.

Remarks: B. Meyer The impact of sea ice on Antarctic krill, Euphausia superba, and other dominant pelagic organism in the Scotia-weddel Sea during winter (ANATS) & Winter study on sea ice and key species (WISKY): The main aim of the voyage was to investigate the importance of the winter sea coverage on the condition of larval Antarctic krill, Euphausia superba (hereafter krill). In this respect we investigated the condition of krill in relation to specific biological and physical sea ice and open water conditions during the transitional phase between austral winter and spring in the Scotia Sea and Northern Weddell Sea, with emphasis on larva krill and other dominant organisms associated with sea ice. The resulting information will enable the prediction of likely effects of environmental change (e.g. decrease of sea ice) on the organisms under study and the response of the pelagic ecosystem to a shift in species composition. To meet the goals of our cruise, we performed sampling from the open water to the ice edge and marginal ice zone (MIZ) into the pack ice and vice versa. Along these transects, we caught krill and other dominant organisms for experimental purposes employing various net types (Rectangular Midwater Trawl-net, Surface Under Ice-Trawl-net, Bongo-net, Multi-net) from near the sea floor to the surface. Imaging methods were used to observe krill foraging at the sea floor. A team of scientific Scuba divers sampled and observed our target organisms under sea ice in the MIZ and in the pack ice. Two ice camps of ca. 10 days each were performed. Camera systems mounted to a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) as well as camera systems used by the Scuba divers were used to document the abundance, distribution and the behaviour of krill and other target organisms under sea ice during ice camp work but also in the MIZ. in addition, an intense biological and physical sea ice program set the environmental parameters in relation to the condition of organisms under study.

Remarks: continued from page 2/3: In detail: GEA The joint survey GEA (Geodynamic Evolution of East Antarctica) of AWI and the Federal Institute for Geoscience and Natural Resources (BGR) above the Sør Rondane mountains was continued with 18 survey flights. The survey aims for a detailed regional mapping of magnetic and gravity anomalies for correlation with the geological formations. It was the continuation of earlier survey flights carried out last season. The airborne programme is related to the geological fieldwork conducted in 2011/12 by BGR. The instrumentation of POLAR 6 consisted of AWI’s RES system, a so-called accumulation radar, a gravity meter, a magnetometer, an altimeter, a digital camera, various GPS receivers, and the data acquisition system DMS by Werum. WEGAS 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 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. Several flights were conducted from Kohnen Station but also the flights to and from Kohnen across the coastal mountains were used for survey. RECISL Due to persistent low cloud cover over the Recovery Glacier region only two out of eight planned survey flights could be carried out. Aim of this survey is to collect data in the Recovery region for deducing sub-glacial properties. DOMEcair The Dome C airborne experiment was a cal/val project for two of ESA’s Earth Explorer satellite missions, namely GOCE (Gravity field and steady state Ocean Circulation Explorer) and SMOS (Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity). The campaign was jointly carried out with the Danish Technical University, the manufacturer and operator of the radiometer EMIRAD-2.

Permit Period: From:  20 Nov 2012   To:  05 Mar 2013
Purpose: Aim of the project “Monitoring Maxwell Bay” 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 seasons 2008/09 and 2009/10 in cooperation with BAS GLS-Loggers were attached on breeding birds to investigate the winter migration of both species. In January and February 2011 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.
Summary of activities: Counting penguins and seabirds; catching, measuring, weighing, ringing and taking blood samples from skuas
