The RECTO Project Sampling at the Princess Ragnhild Coast

The BELSPO-funded RECTO (Refugia and Ecosystem Tolerance the the Southern Ocean) project aims to advance our understanding of the responses of Antarctic marine ecosystems to the strong environmental pressures they face. While the RECTO project has so far focused on the Antarctic Peninsula, the maritime area located in the area of ​​the Princess Regnhild Coast in East Antartica 200 km from the Princess Elisabeth Antarctica station has not been explored, and very little is known about biodiversity in this area. This gallery has a number of snapshots from the ten-day expedition the RECTO project took to the coast in January 2022.
