The SIPEX 2 expedition sets sail tonight aboard the Aurora Australis on a seven week scientific journey to measure the effects of climate change on sea-ice floes east of the southern continent.
SIPEX 2 chief scientist Dr Klaus Meiners will head up a team of 50 scientists from eight countries; Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, New Zealand and the United States.
