This album is part of the NZAC Series, a collection of photographs from an expedition to Antarctica in 2018. It was from New Zealand (NZ) to Antarctica (A) to Chile (C), hence NZAC.

 

A group of international researchers embarked on this journey in Lyttelton, New Zealand, where the researchers and crew boarded the South Korean icebreaking research vessel, ARAON. The vessel sailed across the Antarctic Circle and eventually arrived at its destination in the Weddell Sea region of the Antarctic Peninsula. During this expedition, research activities were carried out which include helicopter operations and anchoring near the King Sejong Station. Finally, the vessel crossed the Drake Passage and docked in Punta Arenas, Chile where the expedition concluded.
