|Cruise Name||SIPEX II - Sea Ice Physics Experiment|
|Voyage Classification||Marine Science|
|Ship|| Aurora Australis Details

|Leader||Voyage Leader: Andy Cianchi|
|Voyage Objectives||This project will measure the physical and biological properties of sea ice on small-to-regional scales using ice coring surveys, remotely-operated and autonomous underwater vehicles, drifting buoys and instrumented helicopters. Data collected will enhance our understanding of sea ice in Antarctic climate and ecosystem processes and will be utilised in the validation of satellite-derived products and the parameterisation of sea ice processes in climate and ecosystem models.|
No reports known - if you know of any, please contact the Data Centre and we can add them.
