SAMS in the Antarctic

Two SAMS researchers are in the Antarctic deploying oceanographic moorings amidst pack ice. They are working in the Weddell Sea on a joint British Antarctic Survey/University of East Anglia/SAMS project called UK SASSI:  Synoptic Antarctic Shelf-Slope Interactions study. UK SASSI is part of an international effort to quantify the freshwater loss from ice melting around the Antarctic Continent.
