Pelagic Processes

Atmospheric, hydrological and oceanographic stressors derived from climate change and anthropogenic activity on the ocean and cryosphere will affect the structure and functions of the marine ecosystems of southern southern Patagonia and the Western Antarctic Peninsula (WAP).

This line of research studies the response of pelagic food webs, the dynamics of the Southern Ocean and the impact on the biological carbon pump and its footprint in the sedimentological record as an indicator of variability in the paleoproductivity of ecosystems. At the same time, it focuses on investigating the sensitivity of the changing ocean to Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs), their recurrence, their toxicity and the observation of new species in the southern system.
