He said: "Much of our time has been spent along the edge of the Larsen-C Ice Shelf where science operations involved repeated oceanographic measurements of the water column adjacent to the ice shelf to determine the volume and rate of fresh, cold ice-shelf water formation due to the melting of the ice shelf base and the intrusion of relatively warmer water masses from the Weddell Sea under the ice shelf.
The search team - led by Prof Julian Dowdeswell - cracked through part of the 17,000 sq mile Larson C ice shelf in the Weddell Sea.

"I was very honoured he did that, and Sir Ranulph Fiennes gave me a quote for the cover, and I've joked I'm going to have to get the quotes tattooed on my forehead!" The photos Sue took for the book are also being used in a campaign to protect the Weddell Sea, where she spent a lot of her time.

Antarctic scientists are drawing up the technical plans for marine protected areas in the Antarctic Ocean, one of which is expected to cover around 1.8 million square kilometers in the Weddell Sea. The final decision will be taken by the CCAMLR in October 2018, when it convenes in Hobart, Tasmania.
Sea ice extent remained below average for the entirety of 2017, with record lows persisting for the first four months, followed by the re-emergence of the Maud Rise polynya in the Weddell Sea in mid-September.
