Boaty McBoatface's maiden mission has helped discover a key process linking increasing Antarctic winds to rising sea temperatures.
Climate scientists say that data collected from the publicly-named submarines's first expedition will help them build more accurate predictions of the effects of climate change on rising global sea levels.
Boaty - McBoatface - Boat - Autosub - Long
Boaty McBoatface is the lead boat of the Autosub Long Range-class of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) used for scientific research.
It is carried on the research vessel RRS Sir David Attenborough owned by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and operated by the British Antarctic Survey (BAS).
Name - Boaty - McBoatface - Online - Poll
The name Boaty McBoatface was originally proposed in an online poll to name the ship that would eventually be this named RRS Sir David Attenborough.
Although Boaty McBoatface was the most popular suggestion in the poll, the suggestion to use the name for the mother ship was not followed.
Minister - Universities - Science - Jo - Johnson
The Minister for Universities and Science, Jo Johnson, announced that the Boaty McBoatface name would be used for one of the submersibles aboard Sir David Attenborough instead.
Scientists have revealed that Boaty's first mission, which took place in April 2017, involved studied the changing temperatures at the bottom of the Southern Ocean.
Day - Mission - Boaty - Kilometres - Miles
During the three day mission, Boaty travelled 180 kilometres (112 miles) through mountainous underwater valleys measuring the temperature, saltiness and turbulence of the water at the bottom of the ocean.
Boaty successfully completed the perilous route using an echo sounder to navigate, reaching...
