Scientific Antarctic Expedition

Foyn Point from Mount Johnston

I’ve been supporting the Antarctic Quest 21 expedition as scientific advisor for just over 12 months now, and if you are not following my professional website news, you won’t necessarily be aware of that.

Today is a special day I want to share with all of you, because the expedition finally got its FCDO permit to undertake the expedition and will be on its way soon to undertake important climate and pollution science research.

The expedition team are departing London Heathrow for Buenos Aires on Friday, 10th December 2021 and will board Polar Latitude‘s SeaVenture in Ushuaia a couple of days later. Then it’s across Drakes Passage and onto the Antarctic Peninsula at Portal Point.

Richard Simpson, seasoned Antarctic and Arctic ski mountaineer and communications expert, put together this video of the team’s journey and route on the Antarctic Peninsula, which will take them from the western shores across the Forbidden Plateau at altitudes over 2000 m to the shores of the Weddell Sea.

Along their track, they will take samples, make meteorological observations and install scientific equipment to provide data that enhances scientific understanding and the accuracy of climate change prediction models.

Read more about this on the expedition website’s science page and fFollow the progress of the expedition on Facebook and Instagram and join the expedition’s free school outreach programme at LikeToBe.
