Weddell Sea Expedition

Current Location

Weddell Sea, Antarctica

Hi, I'm Holly! Join me on an expedition to the Weddell Sea off Antarctica. I will bring you along as we attempt to solve unanswered questions about this remote area.


As we conclude the scientific portion of our expedition and transition to the search for Ernest Shackleton's Endurance, here's an update on this week's activities aboard the S.A. Agulhas II.


Thank you to glaciologist Dr. Wolfgang Rack for this interesting perspective on sea ice and land ice. He has spent 15 summers in Antarctica measuring sea ice and studying ice trends!

Field Notes

Can you think of an animal that swims, is bigger than a penguin, eats krill and lives in Antarctica? The passengers aboard the S.A. Agulhas II had a surprise visitor this week!


Take a look at the different forms of technology that we used on the Weddell Sea Expedition!
