The Rothera Oceanographic and Biological Time Series (RaTS) started in 1997, operating out of the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) research station at Rothera Point on Adelaide Island, at the West Antarctic Peninsula. RaTS is centred on Ryder Bay, a small embayment close to Rothera.  The ethos of RaTS is to make high-frequency, sustained observations with which to answer a number of scientific questions relating to the physical and biological marine environments, their evolution over time, and their interactions with the atmosphere and cryosphere. As such, the RaTS concept is a development and an extension of our previous nearshore marine ecology and sea-ice monitoring work undertaken at Signy Island, South Orkneys, from 1989 to 1994.
