During the austral summer 2017, the OGS Explora, Italian research vessel navigated to the Ross Sea in the framework of the 32th Italian expedition in Antarctica (funded by PNRA). Exceptional sea-ice conditions allowed the vessel to reach all the planned areas for survey. The campaign lasted 60 days and aimed at collecting current and past evidence of ocean dynamics and its impact on ice-sheet retreats. For the first time, a multi-disciplinary team worked to localise the main water masses onto the continental shelf edge of the Ross Sea as well as at the front of the Ross Ice Shelf in a unic campaign. This is not only a story about science, but also, adventure and friendship, exploring parts of the Ross Sea that were unknown because always sea-ice covered.
