There is a 20 person reef and island science research visit to Chagos
in the central Indian Ocean for periods of up to 6 weeks, starting in
February. For various reasons, access to this region is restricted,
and this will be the first research visit since expeditions in the 1970's.
The atolls are uninhabited, the reefs pristine. A couple of researchers
who planned to come have recently had to drop out, thereby freeing up
some space. Anybody who is interested in details of the programme and
who might wish to participate, please reply to this message, for receipt
of a 4 page document on the programme objectives, present participants
and logistical details.
I hope some of you are interested - I would hate to have to leave a
couple of places empty, especially since visits to the central Indian
Ocean after this visit may once again be unlikely for a long time.
