Vår, Malik Arctica, and the others from NPI are steadily heading south and have just passed Madeira. Temperatures are rising – and so is the interest in the Weddell Sea ice concentrations. Currently, there is way too much red (high concentrations) in the map (below), but a lot can happen in the three weeks that are left of their journey… fingers crossed for a big storm that clears the area where they are to work!
