After getting in touch with Christian Haas from York University, Toronto, the team has decided to change course to the North-East, in the direction of Baring Island, in order to collect more valuable scientific data. After reaching Barin Island, they will continue North again. On the map below you can see the originally planned route (blue dotted line) and the new route (solid orange line). This new course means that they will very likely encounter some difficult terrain, where pressure ridges create big piles of ice. But the team is in good spirit, and ready for the challenge.
