Southern Ocean

The Southern Ocean has an immense influence on the Earth's Climatic system. This ocean encompasses the Antarctic continent and connects the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific oceans. It stores and transports more heat and carbon dioxide than any other latitudinal band on Earth.  Over the last several decades this part of the ocean is undergoing some drastic changes. The oceans have warmed up and freshened. This has led to an effect on the physical, biological, and biogeochemical parameters of the ocean affecting the marine ecosystem.


With a mission to investigate the role of the Southern Ocean in the Earth’s Climatic system. I joined the team of scientists to sail onboard the MV S. A. Agulhas vessel on a 2-month long sailing expedition to document the scientific operations being carried out in one of the roughest oceans on this planet.
