Hi there, and thanks for your interest in our blog! We are a group of scientists working at the British Antarctic Survey and associated UK universities, who are setting out on a research voyage to the Southern Ocean in March-April 2016, aboard the RRS James Clark Ross. We will be posting updates on here throughout our voyage, about the science projects, Antarctic wildlife and other interesting stuff that goes on during the cruise. Please also check out some of the other pages on this website for more information about the voyage, the area we are visiting and the scientific objectives. We hope you enjoy reading this blog, and please do get in touch if you want to find out more!
