The Antarctic Circumnavigation Expedition (ACE) happens between 20 December 2016 and 20 March 2017 and will explore the Southern Ocean by travelling around Antarctica. PSI is participating with its project “Study of pre-industrial-like aerosol climate effects” (SPACE). This blog will provide snapshots of our experiences during the expedition to the extent possible as means of communication are very limited. For detailed information on the ACE-SPACE project, check out the project webpage.
