Fjord Phyto

Polar citizen science 

A nasa funded project

Understanding polar fjords through community effort

 

FjordPhyto is a collaborative project between scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography and Universidad Nacional de la Plata working together with Antarctic Tour Operators, Polar Guides, and Travelers visiting the Antarctic Peninsula.

Every year, ocean measurements and phytoplankton samples are collected from the antarctic coast to monitor how melting glaciers influence phytoplankton populations.
