on Friday the 11th of June, I will drive from Glasgow to Immingham where I will join the RRS James Clark Ross on Saturday the 12th of June. This marks the start of my second research cruise as part of my PhD at the University of Glasgow.
Aboard the James Clark Ross, I will travel as part of a group of scientist from the UK up to Svalbard and from there as far up north as possible to study the effect that climate change has upon the arctic environment.
This is my first attempt at a blog and I aim to relay the experiences and adventures I will have while I am on the ship. The frequency of my entries into this blog will not only be subject to my lazyness, but also to weather conditions and where the ship is at any given time, so can't promise to update the blog every day, but I will do so as often as possible. I also hope to add pictures and we'll see how that goes.
I hope you'll enjoy reading what I have to say.
