The Antarctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (ANMAP) 430 283 Ocean Decade

Lead institution:

Griffith University – Australia

AnMAP aims to deliver a circum-Antarctic research and surveillance Programme focused on the major threats of organic contaminant pollution and climate-driven ecosystem change.

Antarctica is no longer pristine, and our ability to capture change, forecast and mitigate impacts hinges on our ability to implement and coordinate effective circum-Polar surveillance measures. This initiative seeks to provide scientific information on threats to the Antarctic environment, and government advice as to preventative and remedial action. It represents an investment into an existing area of research capacity and excellence, and will deliver an established, international, research, logistics and policy network ready to ascend with the initiative for immediate impact.

Start Date: 14/04/2021
End Date: 14/04/2030
