Two Scientists from Mauritius have joined researchers at India’s Antarctic expedition at the Bharati research station in the icy continent’s Larsemann Hills region.

The two scientists are taking part in the research activities as part of the Colombo Security Conclave, a collaborative initiative involving India, Sri Lanka, the Maldives, and Mauritius, with Bangladesh and the Seychelles as observers.

During their three to four-month participation in the Antarctic expedition, the scientists will engage in collaborative research across various disciplines of polar science.

They will also gain insights into polar logistics and the challenges of the environment.

The inclusion of these scientists is a result of the inaugural CSC Oceanographers and Hydrographers Conference held in Goa and Hyderabad in November 2022.

In June last year, scientists from the Colombo Security Conclave nations embarked on a month-long scientific expedition in the Indian Ocean Region aboard the vessel ‘Sagar Nidhi’.
