General Responsibilities

My primary responsibilities are running the IMOS Antarctic seal tracking program. Briefly, the Antarctic and the surrounding Southern Ocean are one of the most important, yet least observed of marine habitats. Connecting all the world's oceans, the physical structure of the Southern Ocean influences world climate and ecology, and plays a key role in global climate. Within the IMOS program we use satellite linked data loggers that measure physical ocean properties (specifically salinity, temperature, and depth) to depths of up to 2000m. Merging oceanography with marine mammal ecology advances our understanding of the world's oceans and its top predators, and allows us to predict how these species will be affected by future climate changes.

In addition, I co-chair the Global Ocean Observing System network; Animal Borne Ocean Sensors (AniBOS – www.anibos.com). AniBOS provides freely available oceanographic data collected through bio-logging, deploying sensors on marine animals with the broad vision to; enhance understanding and describe our changing oceans through the eyes of marine animals. The mission of AniBOS is to; collect and make freely available oceanographic measurements from the most inaccessible regions of the global seas to understand our Changing Oceans

Uncoupling oceanographic and life history drivers to alternate foraging strategies in Long-nosed fur seals (2017)$3,000
Description
Long-nosed fur seal (LNFS, formerly New Zealand fur seal, Arctocephalus forsteri) breeding range in South Australia is distributed across a relatively small geographic area characterized by a southern distribution, associated with narrow shelves in proximity to localized seasonal coastal upwelling in summer and autumn. Early in lactation (December to March), females undertake short foraging trips (~4 days duration) to near shelf waters (70-90 km the colony), in regions associated with localised upwelling. However, between April to May females switch to foraging in distant oceanic waters 700-1,000 km to the south of breeding colonies, associated with the Subtropical Front (STF), where they continue to forage until the weaning of their pup in September/October. These winter foraging trips can last more than two weeks. It is unclear if this major shift in foraging distribution occurs in response to: 1) reduced prey availability as a consequence of cessation in coastal upwelling; 2) life-history/pup growth factors that enable females to switch to more reliable but distant foraging grounds once their pup reaches a size and condition threshold where they can sustain longer fasts; or 3) a combination of these factors.Understanding the role of the in-situ oceanographic and life history factors in shaping alternate summer and winter foraging strategies is the central focus of this study. Changes in shelf oceanographic features associated with fur seal foraging areas will be monitored using a novel approach, by simultaneously fitting biologging tags to fur seals and oceanographic (CTD/Fluorometer/Irradiance) tags onto Australian sea lion males. Sea lions forage over shelf waters year round and sample the entire water column, providing a means to monitor changes in local oceanographic conditions from the summer to winter period.

Assessment of habitats, productivity and food webs on the Kerguelen Axis in the Indian Sector of the Southern Ocean (2015)$0
Description
The Southern Ocean is one of the most rapidly changing environments on earth. Australia seeks to sustain marine resources of high fisheries and conservation value that are dependent on the productive ecosystems of the Kerguelen Axis (including Australia's Territory of Heard Island and McDonald Islands south to the Antarctic continent). The Kerguelen Axis has never been surveyed as a single region to determine the critical relationships between environmental and biogeochemical drivers responsible for the transition between the northern copepod-fish dominated foodweb to the southern krill-based foodweb. This knowledge is essential for ecosystem-based management of fisheries, as well as conservation of whale populations and marine biodiversity. The results will be important for assessing likely responses to change in the ecosystem (from climate or fisheries) as well as change in the global oceans and carbon cycle, which are fundamental to the Earth's response to climate change

Seals from space: Developing techniques to use satellite remote sensing to census pack-ice seals in Prydz Bay (2015 - 2017)$148,000
Description
Despite i component of the Southern Ocean ecosystem, pack-ice seals (crabeater, Ross and leopard seals) are notoriously difficult to census as they are sparsely distributed over large regions of remote pack-ice. Historically, population censuses have been made from ship- or helicopter-based surveys, which are expensive and logistica!!ydifficult, and this inevitably leads to data which are limited, in time and space. High resolution satellite images allow us now to accurately census seals e.g. elephant and Weddell seals at unprecedented spatial and temporal scales. Using this technology promises to provide regular estimates of the numbers of pack-ice seals in important regions such as Prydz Bay This study will develop techniques to survey pack-ice seals from high resolution satellite images, including automatic detection functions and a preliminary habitat model based on the characteristics of the ice contained in the images.

Seals as Oceanographic Samplers (2015 - 2018)$1,090,800
Description
The Antarctic and the surrounding Southern Ocean are one of the most important, yet least observed of marine habitats. Connecting all the world's oceans, the physical structure of the Southern Ocean profoundly influences world climate and ecology, and plays a key role in global climate. Within the IMOS program we use satellite linked data loggers that measure physical ocean properties (specifically salinity, temperature and depth) to depths of up to 2000m. Merging oceanography with marine mammal ecology advances our understanding of the world's oceans and its top predators, and allow us to predict how these species will be affected by future climate changes. This study collects important data on ocean properties throughout the Antarctic winter - data previously unavailable but crucially important to oceanographic and climate studies. Importantly this study builds on an existing continuous eight year time-series of annual oceanographic measurements between Davis and Kergeulen.

Climatic variability and harvest impacts on the demography of the short-tailed shearwater (Ardenna tenuirostris): A trans-hemisphere migrant (2015 - 2016)$12,200
Description
The aim of this project is to investigate the intrinsic relationship of short-tailed shearwaters (STSW) vital rates and their interaction with the environment, and to quantify how environmental variability affects, individual fitness, population growth rates and population viability of the Furneaux Island group populations. Using a 67-year mark-recapture time series integrated with tracking data collected through this study, information will be incorporated with demographic and environmental parameters to investigate the mechanisms underpinning the health of the population and the individual performance of the STSW. Additionally we will estimate vital rates (survival and fecundity) for the Fisher Island population and relate these vital rates to environmental covariates and harvest rates to create a robust population and harvest model for STSW.
