The ship will depart from Reykjjavik, Iceland on 14 May 2022 and then travel around the south tip of Greenland. Measurements will then be taken along the coastal areas of Nuuk and Kangerlussuaq. The scientists will then travel  north of the David Strait to the ice edge and close to North America before returning to the UK on 27 June 2022.
