The RRS James Clark Ross is currently on science cruise JR274,  Ocean Acidification,  and will be spending the next few weeks sampling rather a lot of water.

The above image is the proposed track for this cruise and at the time of writing this short update the JCR is just off of Elephant Island,  from where Ernest Shackleton set off in the small boat James Caird for South Georgia.
