Five multidisciplinary cruises in the Southern Ocean for a better understanding of the oceanographic processes were undertaken.
The focus areas of study during these expeditions were Oceanography and Hydrography (during the 2009 Expedition), biogeochemistry and paleo-climatology (2010) and plankton dynamics (2011). Some of the salient results of the studies carried out during these expeditions are as below:
Strong surface winds blowing over southern latitudes facilitate increased air-sea transfer of fluxes in the study area.
