The uniqueness of the Antarctic Circumnavigation Expedition (ACE) is demonstrated by 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 give us a holistic view of the Southern Ocean and aid our understanding of this region.
