Project Name/Number: Activities at Dallmann Lab/Base Carlini: Foraging ecology of southern elephant seal males and oceanography
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: H. Bornemann (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: The project involved assessment of at-sea movements of southern elephant seal males from King George Island (KGI) using satellite telemetry. It aimed 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 region of the Filchner Trough System (FTS) around 79°S 36°W. However, none of the 19 data sets on tracking and foraging behavior contributed to the FTS. Data focus on the Amundsen and Bellinghshausen Sea region instead.

Project Name/Number: Activities at Kohnen Station: Meteorological measurements at Kohnen Station in the framework of the project „Coldest Firn“
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: G. Birnbaum (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: Preparatory work at Neumayer III was carried out to get familiar with the installation and the handling of the radiosounding system and the automatic weather station, which were operated later at Kohnen Station. Scientific work at Kohnen Station was splitted into three periods. From 29 November 2013 to 06 December 2013 measurement instruments were installed. From 07 December 2013 to 31 January 2014 observations were performed. Finally, from 01 February 2014 to 03 February 2014 instruments were dismantled. All near-surface measurements and the snow sampling were performed in the vicinity of Kohnen Station within a radius of 300m. The observation and measurement programme at Kohnen Station included: • hourly routine synoptic observations, • upper-air soundings four times a day, • continuous automatic weather station measurements, • continuous near-surface spectral and broadband radiation measurements, • continuous sun photometer measurements, • continuous ultrasonic anemometer measurements, • hourly operations of four digital photo cameras, • snow sampling up to a depth of 50 cm (vertical profile in a snow pit) five times within the season. Measurements performed will help to improve prognostic snow models and parameterizations of surface albedo, bidirectional reflectivity and snow properties used in numerical models.

Project Name/Number: Activities at Neumayer Station: 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 Neumayer 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: Adaptive capacity of Antarctic marine invertebrates to ocean warming and ocean acidification (K-068)/ expedition to Scott Base (New Zealand)
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: T. Sandersfeld (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: Despite evidence for distribution shifts of single species (Perry et al. 2005) and ecosystem changes as a reaction to global warming (Schofield et al. 2010), little is known about the underlying processes. Most animals are highly adapted to the specific conditions met in their natural habitat (Clarke & Johnston 1996). As a consequence of warming waters in the Southern Ocean, shifts in species distribution are expected with sub-Antarctic species migrating southward to high-Antarctic waters, while species from temperate regions might intrude sub-Antarctic areas. Species distribution and abundance are driven by reproduction and growth. Growth and reproduction depend upon surplus energy being available after baseline costs of maintenance have been met. However, interdependencies of temperature changes and energy budgets of single species have rarely been investigated. The aim of this project was to quantify energy allocation of fish species from northern and southern Antarctic regions at different temperatures. Therefore, energy intake from food as well as energy expenditure for growth, reproduction, excretion and maintenance was measured. Temperature dependent energy allocation helps to determine the sensitivity of a species to a changing environment and to understand distribution limits of different Antarctic fish species as well as distribution shifts in response to climate change. As a species from northern Antarctic regions, specimen of the yellowfin notie (Lepidonotothen nudifrons), were caught during Polarstern cruise ANTXXVIII-3, brought to Germany by ship and experiments were carried out in the AWI’s cold water aquaria in Bremerhaven. A comparable high- Antarctic fish species, the emerald rockcod (Trematomus bernacchii) was caught in the Ross Sea in October/November 2013 during an expedition to New Zealand’s Antarctic station ‘Scott Base’. Live fish were transported to Christchurch, where experiments were carried out in a cold water aquarium of the University of Canterbury (School of Biological Science). The collaboration between Dr. Miles Lamare from the University of Otago, Prof. Bill Davison from the University of Canterbury and Tina Sandersfeld (PhD student) from the Alfred Wegener Institute did successfully result in quantification of energy budgets of two comparable fish species from northern and southern Antarctic regions. Analysis of possible differences of energy allocation at different temperatures are carried out at the moment and are expected to help assessing the impact of increasing temperature on changes in production as well as potential shifts in distribution ranges due to global warming.

Project Name/Number: Dallmann Laboratory
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: Th. Brey (AWI)
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, rising temperatures 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 constitutes 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: A. Eckstaller (AWI)
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 2013/14 by members of the wintering team and a summer season team leader. Again more efforts were made to improve the 12V DC power supply at remote station VNA2. A third windturbine was installed at on of the container posts and the total battery capacity was raised to 1600 Ah. Thermal insulation of the batteries and heating them using excess windturbine energy was additionally improved. A simple W-Lan based remote control was installed for switching the wind turbines on or off. Windturbines are shortcut during summer whenn sufficient solar power is available. This reduces the risk of damage and wearing of the bearings. For easier installation works the array container of station VNA2 was towed to the base for approx. 3 weeks in January 2014. No recordings at site VNA2 could be made during this period. Remote station VNA3 operated without any interruption also in 2013. However, the seismometer signal shows strange almost monchromatic and persistent long period disturbances on both horizontal components with slightly varying periods in the range between 80 -100 sec. A change of the seismometer in mid-May 2014 was without any success. The reason for these "unpleasant" noise contamination is completely not clear yet. Eventually unknown electromagnetic disturbances from the power management system are coupling into the feedback system of the seismometer. Thus very long period surface wave recordings are contaminated at the moment by this effect. More efforts to eliminate these disturbances will be made again starting in August 2014. 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 the science officer in charge after arriving from Cape Town. A one-day trip to Svea with a Twin Otter aircraft was made to service the seismic station there. Some field explorations in the vicinity of Svea station were made by 3 two-man-teams to look for suitable locations for the eventual installation of a local autonomous seismic stations network in this area. 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 2013/2014 parts of the side walls of the observatory's firn cavern were reshaped again by cutting out of approx. half a 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 were carried on are now available sind beginning of July 2012. This is accomplished using a 2-band Ashtec Z-12 receiver with its antenna on the roof of Neumayer-III. Converted data in Rinex format are available on request and might in future be downloaded from a web interface. These GPS recordings have been relaunched because they provide valuable informations for higher atmosphere reasearch.

Halvfarryggen, Dronning Maud Land
Project Name/Number: Occurrence of potentially harmful dinoflagellates in Antarctica
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: B. Krock (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: The approaching global warming and climate change will have an incalculable impact on life on earth. The Western Antarctic Peninsular with its surrounding Southern Ocean is currently one of the most threatened regions of the world in terms of changing environmental conditions. Unicellular phytoplankton is at the bottom of the food chain, where disturbed ecological dynamics subsequently will have a great effect on all levels of nutrition. Dinoflagellates have great importance for ecosystem functioning in the polar regions. Yet the biogeographical distribution of known and emerging toxic species and the nature of their toxins remain poorly defined for the Argentine Continental Shelf. Even less is known regarding the driving factors influencing the population dynamics and toxin composition of the toxigenic species. The major aim is to unravel the interactions and feedbacks between biogeochemistry and plankton composition with regard to occurrence of harmful algae and their toxin composition. A second objective will be to determine the partitioning and metabolism of these toxins within the planktonic food web. The core activities will include field sampling expeditions along the Argentine coast for toxigenic organisms and associated toxins, combined with detailed laboratory studies on selective grazing and high resolution analysis of toxin profiles from field plankton and cultured isolates.

Project Name/Number: Polar 6
Discipline: Airborne Campaign
Principal Investigator: D. Steinhage (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: AMASIM Two flights for AMASIM (Airborne measurements for Antarctic sea ice monitoring) were conducted from the British wintering-over station Rothera on the Antarctic Peninsula mapping sea-ice on both sides of the Peninsula with ESA’s ASIRAS instrument for validation of CryoSat-2. VELMAP Ice thickness and surface topography of several glaciers on the Antarctic Peninsula North of Rothera were mapped. These flights are a contribution to the HGF Alliance Remote Sensing and Earth System Dynamics and were planned by the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg. SAF Two survey flights from the British base Halley were conducted for the project Seals at Filchner trough (Weddell Sea) taking aerial photographs for a census on seals. These flights are in conjunction with the SEAFOS project which is carried out on board of RV Polarstern (ANT XXIX/9) and comprises also helicopter flights. WEGAS East and WEGAS WEGAS (West-East Gondwana amalgamation and its separation) was the continuation of the earlier project VISA. This season is the focus of WEGAS on the tectonic structure on the ocean north of Prydsz Bay. The base for this survey was the Australian station Davis. Due to an helicopter accident, the survey had to be cancelled after two flights. The remaining time was used to continue the WEGAS pattern in Dronning Maud Land from the Belgian Princess Elisabeth Station. 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. CoFi Met/Structure, SWIT 19 flights were carried out for the joined meteorological-glaciological campaign CoFi (Coldest Firn) as well as for SWIT (Stancomb-Wills ice tongue, ice thickness and basal properties) based from Kohnen station. Flight for SWIT could be integrated into the CoFi Met/Structure survey. The meteorological part of the survey is also a collaboration between AWI and the University Leipzig. RECISL Fifteen survey flights were carried out from the temporarily established field camp for mapping ice thickness, surface topography, magnetic and gravity field. Aim of this survey is to map ice thickness and subglacial properties in the hitherto unexplored Recovery glacier basin. These flights are a contribution to the HGF Alliance Remote Sensing and Earth System Dynamics. RecFil At the end of the season only the flight mapping the ice front of the eastern part of the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf could be carried out despite several attempts earlier in the season to carry out the two flights planned for RecFil (Reconnaissance Filcher Ice Shelf). The second flight, mapping ice thickness and internal structure of the Filchner Ice Shlef had to be postponed for next year. Logistic support Just one flight was carried out for moving equipment between Novo runway and Neumayer III. Another flight was conducted near Neumayer for familiarization of the new wintering-over team with the surrounding of Ekströmisen.

Main Activity/ Remarks: SW, BIA, ANS, and BM have made a long-standing contribution to the understanding of changes in body composition, energy balance, and regulation of the cardiovascular and hormonal system during overwintering in the Antarctic. Except for BM, requiring a small venous blood sample, all of these experiments are non-invasive, require minimal to moderate time, and are easy to operate. These experiments have been successfully completed and are presently being analysed. The study of the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich investigating 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 was also continued during winter season 2013. First results will be published next SCAR meeting.

Project Name/Number: Traverse: EKSEIS
Discipline:
Principal Investigator: O. Eisen (AWI)
Main Activity/ Remarks: The project acquired an extensive seismic data to deduce the following information: bathymetry below Ekströmisen; englacial stratigraphy of Ekströmisen across its grounding line and in neighboring grounded ice-sheet regions; sub-ocean and subglacial stratigraphy underneath the Ekström ice shelf and upstream of its grounding line; sedimentary and basement stratigraphy across the strong magnetic anomaly south of Halvfarryggen; distribution of the crystal orientation fabric (COF), internal stratigraphy and related acoustic properties in and below the ice sheet at Halvfarryggen, Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica. The project employed the vibrator “EnviroVibe” along 407 km of the traverse. Shots were recorded in 6-fold coverage in 125 m spacing on the shelf and single, 2- and 3-fold coverage on the grounded part with 750, 375 and 250 m spacing, respectively. In total, about 3000 sweeps were employed. Explosive seismics in combination with air-pressure drilling (RAM) was used at three locations to obtain common-midpoint profiles. Boreholes were drilled to about 25-30 m depth. A magnetometer was operated along the traverse the whole time. Gravimeter readings were obtained about two to three times a day on the grounded ice. In the vicinity of the magnetic anomaly, a cross-profile was obtained with magnetic and gravimetric measurements. Two 10 m firn cores were recovered as well as an AWS serviced on Halvfarryggen.

Remarks / Description: Dr. Sepp Kipfstuhl / Dr. Gerit Birnbaum The overall goal of the sub-project CoFi-Met is to improve prognostic snow models and parameterizations of snow albedo used in regional and global climate models. To achieve this goal we will couple airborne remote sensing measurements (spatial variability) over Dronning Maud Land to ground based in situ measurements (temporal variability) at Kohnen Station. Ground based measurements will include spectral and broadband surface albedo, bidirectional reflectivity, surface roughness, snow temperature profile, black carbon content in the snow and atmospheric quantities like temperature, humidity, wind speed and wind direction. The specific surface area of snow will be measured within the project CoFi. Based on the measurements and investigations with radiative transfer and snow models, our goal is to check whether existing prognostic snow models can be used to forecast variations in snow albedo and bidirectional reflectivity on the Antarctic plateau.

Remarks / Description: D. Zitterbart, AWI The aim of this study is to understand how iconic Antarctic species, such as Emperor penguins and Weddell seals, have responded to past climate changes. Molecular tools are used to seek genetic signatures of populations from breeding locations around the Antarctic continent to detect past breeding refuges. This enables us to understand how today's populations arose from those refugia. Genetic data will also be used to understand migration and genetic diversity in present-day populations. From this knowledge we can predict the fate of those species under future climate change scenarios, their ability to adapt to new environmental conditions, and can assess the risk of local or widespread extinction. To achieve the aims of this project we require samples of Emperor penguins and Weddell seals from colonies and breeding areas from around the Antarctic continent. The samples are to be collected only from rom emperor penguin chicks and Weddell seal pups that died of natural causes.

Remarks / Description: Horst Bornemann Adult southern elephant seal males of the colony “Stranger Point” on King George Island / Isla 25 de Mayo were instrumented with ARGOS satellite transmitters in 2000 and 2010 to study their foraging migrations. Seals either remained in the area of the Bransfield Strait, or travelled on extended latitudinal gradients to the Bellingshausen, Scotia, or Weddell Sea. All seals tracked over long periods showed extended residence times at circumscribed at-sea locations, considered as foraging hotspots. These spots were widely distributed within the aforementioned seas and coincide with bathymetric features such as slopes, plateaus and seamounts, or particular hydrographic features such as the Filchner Outflow System in the Southern Weddell Sea. Here the outflow of ice shelf water of the Filchner Ronne Ice Shelf interacts with warm deep water of the Weddell Gyre circulation. This interaction is supposed to be the primary cause that converts this area in a biological hotspot where upper and intermediate trophic level interactions are maximised. The Filchner Outflow System is in the focus of RV Polarstern’s expedition ANT-XXIX/9 and the expedition SAF of AWI’s research aircraft Polar 6, and both are scheduled in synchrony with our work at the Dallmann Laboratory / Carlini Station for 2013/14. The current campaign aims for a re-instrumentation of adult males to investigate whether they continue to travel to similar areas and to obtain higher resolution data in combination with in situ sampling of blood and tissue for analyses of the seals‘ prey spectrum. Our work includes up to 20 new deployments of satellite transmitters on adult southern elephant seal males of the Stranger Point colony (ASPA 132) at the end of the breeding season (November). Males that return to Stranger Point for their annual moult will shed of their devices along the beaches of ASPA 132 and will become subject to a repeated deployment (April) in order to cover a full year data set. A subset of 10 animals will be instrumented with CTD-combined ARGOS satellite-relayed dive loggers that have the capabilities to record also in situ water temperature and conductivity for the entire migrations of tracked seals. Such data are of suitable quality to characterise the oceanographic settings utilised by seals. Given that instrumented seals travel towards the region of the Filchner Outflow System, the immediate in situ data on the seals' foraging depths in the area can be used to align the trawl depths of the fishing gear on board RV Polarstern in order to get information on the seals’ prey. The reconciliation of data on the seals' diving behaviour and on the hydrographic features with information on the occurrence and biomass of the seals' prey aims to describe the upper trophic level interactions in detail. The transmitters will be glued to the fur of seals using quick setting epoxy resin. For the purpose of instrumentation, seals will be anaesthetized. The length and girth of each seal will be measured. The mass of the seal will be determined in a post hoc calculation via photogrammetry. On top of the instrumentation, a blood sample will be taken together with blubber, hair and whisker samples. Blood samples will be centrifuged, separated in red blood cells and serum and both deep frozen at -80°C. Within the serum fraction we aim to analyse for prey specific biomarker proteins that allow for reconciliation with the seals' prey spectrum (e.g. octopine in octopods, specific amines in fishes, homarines in molluscs and crustaceans) in later laboratory analyses. These data can hint at the recent prey spectrum within a couple of days prior to blood sampling using both serum and blood cell fractions. Blubber samples will be taken as biopsy and deep frozen at -80°C, and, together with hair and whisker samples, used to get retrospective information on the prey spectra on intermediate time scales up to a couple of months by means of component-specific analyses of fatty acids and isotopes. The project involves scientists (PIs) from Argentina (M.E.I. Márquez, Instituto Antártico Argentino), South Africa (M.N. Bester, Mammal Research Institute, University of Pretoria), New Zealand (R. Eisert, Gateway Antarctica – Centre for Antarctic Studies and Research, University of Canterbury), Australia (T. Rogers, School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Science, University of New South Wales), and Germany (W. Hagen, University of Bremen; M. Schröder, H. Hellmer, Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research). All data and related meta-information will be made available in open access via the Data Publisher for Earth & Environmental Science PANGAEA (www.pangaea.de), and will be attributed to a consistent project label denoted as "Marine Mammal Tracking" (MMT).

Remarks / Description: A circular anomaly was found in recent airborne magnetic surveys approximately 10 km SSW of Neumayer Station, Ekstrøm shelf ice, Antarctica. The signature and position, together with further coast parallel oriented anomalies and dipping reflector sequences found in seismic data suggest a volcanic origin of this anomaly. Intensive volcanism in this region took place during the continental breakup of Gondwana ~130 Ma years ago. Hence this circular anomaly can probably be interpreted as the eroded remnants of an ancient volcano. To further investigate the crustal structure beneath the volcano, seismic stations have already been deployed in the beginning of 2013 and additional ground based magnetic and gravimetric profiles are going to be recorded in the Antarctic summer 2013/14 in the project NM Volcano MagGrav. Magnetic profiles from different heights can be used to estimate depth and shape of the source rocks causing the magnetic anomaly. Gravimetric data can reveal density and therefore material differences between the volcano and the surrounding crust. Combining the data of all those geophysical disciplines should yield a good model of the local crustal structure and lead to more insights into volcanic processes during the continental breakup.

Remarks / Description: PI: Daniel Zitterbart (AWI) This project aims to understand the reorganization process in penguin huddles and the implications for social thermoregulation. We will install a remote-operated penguin observatory including hard- and software for fast image acquisition and real-time processing. The observatory will be 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 will also be recorded, and together 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.

Number of Voyages: 0
Remarks: The POLARSTERN expedition PS82 (ANT-XXIX/9) (FOS, Filchner Outflow System) started on 19.12.2013 in Cape Town (South Africa) and ended on 05.03.2014 in Cape Town. The main investigation area was the Filchner area, southern Weddell Sea. The expedition was a multidisciplinary expedition and was divided in four sub working packages: BATFOS: Bathymetry and sediment characteristics. PI: Dorschel (AWI, Germany): Multi beam and sub-bottom data (Parasound) was acquired from 21st of December 2013 until the 3rd of March 2014 outside of the exclusive economic zone of South Africa. During station work south of 60°S both echo sounder were switched of. This was furthermore done to avoid unnecessary duplication of data coverage and during whale encounter. On longer transits under ice-free conditions, the ship track was planned to collect bathymetric data from so far unsurveyed seabed areas. SODFOS: Ice-physics, hydrography and tracers. PI’s: Schröder (AWI, Germany), Schwegmann (AWI), Isla (ICM-CISIC, Spain), Osterhuis (UiB, Norway): The ice physics program included a sea ice observation every full hour under daylight conditions. These observations followed the ASPeCt protocol, with the standard software being provided on a notebook on the ship’s bridge. For every observation, pictures were taken in three different directions. In total 23 buoys were installed on the sea ice at 17 different stations. 12 stations by helicopter and 5 stations from POLARSTERN using the ship’s mummy chair or the gangway. The hydrographic measurement program included a total of 142 CTD profiles with an intensive water sampling program for tracer physics, water chemistry and biology. In total 4 long term moorings from Norway could be recovered, 2 mooring from Norway were deployed and 5 moorings from AWI. The S2 observatory at the Filchner sill is part of the global net of monitoring sites under CLIVAR Southern Ocean Observing System (SOOS), OceanSITES and the FP7 project FixO3. HOTFOS: Pelagic production, pelagic-benthic-coupling, benthos and demersal fishes. PI’s: Koch (AWI, Germany), Flores (AWI), Auel (UniHB, Germany), Isla (ICM-CISIC, Spain), Knust (AWI): Samples for water chemistry and phytoplankton were provided by the CTD-Rosette (SODFOS). In total 36 multi-net catches were carried out to measure distribution, biomass and production of zooplankton. Macro zooplankton was sampled with a Multiple opening Rectangular Midwater Trawl (M-RMT) at 28 stations. M-RMT sampling was complemented with profiles of the POLARSTERN EK60 echo sounder during steaming. The big bentho pelagic-trawl could not be operated due to the very difficult ice situation. To investigate the species composition, distribution, biomass and production of the benthic realm, in total 15 bottom trawls, 17 Agassiz trawls, 35 multi-grab were used. Additionally 8 bottom trawls were carried out to get material for further analyses in the home labs (Isla, Spain). For sediment chemistry 33 multi-corer were deployed (Isla, Spain). SEAFOS: Distribution of seals in the Filchner area and seal biology PI’s: Bornemann (AWI, Germany), Bester (MRI, South Africa): Visual surveys of pack ice seals using helicopters were conducted from aboard POLARSTERN. For the survey flights, “line-transect sampling” was used to estimate the density and abundance of pack ice seals. To investigate the diving behaviour CTD-SRDL transmitter were deployed on Weddell seals (n = 9) during their moult and all individuals selected had at least completed the moult on the head. For all seal related operations (including deployments of satellite transmitters and reconnaissance flights) a total of about 31 hours’ helicopter operations was needed.
