The James Clark Ross is now outside the limits of the normal communications satellite.  I may,  from time to time,  be able to update this page with the Daily Position Report,  below.  There will be no menu or photographs until the ship is back inside the satellite footprint.  I also hope that the ship's track will continue to work. More information on this can be found HERE

The James Clark Ross now crossed from Latitude 80N to 79N,  moving from Grid KQ back into Grid KR.  The ship will remain in this grid for some time as it continues the passage southwards.

The weather today has been mixed,  with thick fog  through to good visibility.  There has been no sunshine.

During the passage south the ship will continue to stop from time to time to carry out more science work.  Today it has been CTD deployments,  which have all been fairly swift as the water depth is not that great.

 

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.
