The uniqueness of the Antarctic Circumnavigation Expedition (ACE) is demonstrated in the huge variety and nature of the data collected. Simultaneously collecting data and samples from a circumnavigation of Antarctica over a period of 90 days in the southern summer of 2016/17 will hopefully give us a holistic view of the Southern Ocean and aid with our understanding of this region.

More data will be available over the coming months.
