2019 Cruise

The RRS Discovery will depart from Punta Arenas at the beginning of December for the second CUSTARD cruise. Scientists and engineers will once again head to remote waters beyond the southwest tip of Chile where they will spend Christmas and New Year! They will be recovering a glider deployed on the previous cruise, deploying further gliders, CTDs, a marine snow catcher, underwater vision profiler and ARGO floats. Samples will be collected for processing and experiments on board ship as well back on land.
