Antarctica New Zealand would like to congratulate the Antarctic researchers who have been awarded financial support in this year’s Marsden Fund awards.

The prestigious fund supports excellent New Zealand research, and successful applicants were announced this week.

Antarctica New Zealand Chief Scientific Advisor, Professor John Cottle, says it’s great to see Antarctic research receiving support and recognition.

“At Antarctica New Zealand we are lucky to support world class Kiwi researchers who are contributing to global understanding of Antarctica’s role in the earth system, and it great to see these important projects receive Marsden funding.

“It’s now more important than ever to be supporting Antarctic research as communities around the world work to understand the impact environmental change will have on Antarctica, and in turn the rest of the globe,” he says.
