The map above shows the Maud Rise study area of the project. Depth contours outlining Maud Rise are shown in white. The planned cruise track is shown in black. The actual crusie track is shown in blue with the current ship's position indicated with a blue dot. (If the dot is not visible, the ship is transiting to or from the study site.) The colors on the map indicate the concentration of sea ice cover. During the cruise, we hope to encounter regions of low ice concentration.
