    One condition for designating candidate sites to be afforded protection in the Weddell Sea is the subsequent yearly monitoring of these sites from research and fishing vessels, therefore knowledge about changes in interannual and seasonal ice dynamics is a fundamental factor for the successful completion of assigned research tasks in these designated waters. This also requires analysis of the navigation component.
