Antarctic marine engineering team
The Antarctic Marine Engineering Team is responsible for providing engineering support and expertise in the design, development, manufacture and support of equipment used to conduct BAS research. Disciplines include electronic, mechanical, software and communications engineering.
The team’s main function is to develop systems for science data acquisition purposes. The requirements of these systems are often quite diverse and usually unique in their design. Much of the equipment is specially developed and is application specific. However, the group has developed equipment that has applications in other areas and where practical this technology has been utilised on other programmes.
The group provides support during many science programmes and has key responsibilities for marine science cruises and airborne survey work. Coupled with this is a requirement to provide engineering support in areas such as communications and systems monitoring.
The team has a very wide remit at BAS and is dedicated to providing a high quality engineering service to its users, whilst maintaining quality, flexibility and efficiency.

Diurnal cycle of coastal anthropogenic pollutant transport over southern West Africa during the DACCIWA campaign
14 January, 2019 by Russell LadkinDuring the monsoon season, pollutants emitted by large coastal cities and biomass burning plumes originating from Central Africa have complex transport pathways over Southern West Africa (SWA). The Dynamics–Aerosol–Chemistry–Cloud–Interactions in…
