One of the more striking features of Heard Island lies underfoot. Mixed in among the grains of black volcanic sand are glassy green crystals of the mineral olivine. Most crystals are very small, but some are up to 4 mm long.

The Kerguelen Plateau: Marine Ecosystems and Fisheries

Proceedings of the second symposium

The second Kerguelen Plateau Symposium on Marine Ecosystems and Fisheries was held in mid-November 2017. The meeting brought together more than 70 researchers studying in the Australian and French regions of the Kerguelen Plateau.

Presentations focused on advances in marine ecosystem knowledge, marine geomorphology and oceanography, developments in marine policy, fisheries resource assessment and management, biology, biodiversity and conservation in the region. The Symposium closed with a synthesis session where a common theme was realised; the importance of the Kerguelen Plateau as a natural laboratory in the face of a changing climate.
