The Antarctic Ocean floor

.... The reason why these waters have remained almost unexplored is due to its adverse climate which, in turn, has assured that human presence has been scarce. On this present campaign the scientists will trawl the ocean floor at up to 2000 metres depth, using both Agassiz-trawl fitted with a closed net as well a...
