The Falklands is known for peat, but how much of it makes up the Islands?

Dr Stephanie Carter has been working on creating soil maps for the Falkland Islands. For the past two years she has visited over 200 sites and created multiple maps of all the different soil compositions. Dr Carter talks about the classification methods used and answers the burning question; just how much peat is in the Falklands?

Members of the South Georgia Right Whale Project share their experience of working in the antarctic. 

The project is a dedicated population survey of southern right whales, in their feeding grounds off South Georgia, since whaling ceased in the 1970s. The scientists aim to find out how many southern right whales use these waters and where and what they are feeding on. They are also measuring the genetic diversity and health status of the population. The surveys use advanced acoustics to locate whales. The team then take photographs for photo-identification, collect skin samples, and attach satellite tags to identify and track them.
