Antarctic Large Scale Box Analysis and The Role Of the Scotia Sea - ALBATROSS
The ALBATROSS cruise will take place between 15th March and 23rd April 1999
RRS James Clark Ross.
The cruise is designated JR40 by the
British Antarctic Survey
who run the ship.
RRS James Clark Ross
The principal scientists are
of the School of Environmental Sciences
and David Stevens of the School of
at the University of East Anglia.
There are 21 scientists and support staff
participating in the cruise.
The aim of the cruise is to study the influence of the Scotia Sea on
global ocean circulation.
Some background information, specific objectives
and the proposed cruise track is available in PDF
format (which can be read using the
During the cruise we plan to issue regular bulletins describing our progress.
These bulletins will include graphics showing the cruise track as we
progress, a selection of initial results and some digital photographs.
