Welcome! My name is Masha, I am one of the scientists in the Antarctic Circumnavigation Expedition (ACE) on board an icebreaker Akademik Tryoshnikov. Our science project focuses on investigating sources of the recent freshening of the Southern Ocean. As such, we study both atmosphere and ocean. I am also following in the footsteps of my grandfather, Vitaly, who was a scientist with the Fifth Soviet Antarctic Expedition (5th SAE) back in 1959-1961.
This blog reflects my personal experiences.
