ACE data

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.

All data published from ACE can be found here. More data will be available over the coming months.
