The past twenty four hours has been spent working in the ice, with the ship trying to find gaps that will allow the science equipment to be deployed safely. The weather has been mixed but with a fairly persistent fog never very far away. The wind has picked up slightly and is blowing from the south, which is pushing the pack towards the north and where we hope to be going in the next few days.
I am not aware of any interesting wildlife sightings today.
Previous updates from this trip The archive only goes to 13th July. Once back in range of comms I will update any days that have interesting data.
