Reports on an expedition composed of 20 U.S and Soviet scientists out to investigate how the Southern Ocean cools the world's other oceans and whether global warming will alter its behavior. Role played the by the ocean's sea cover in limiting models for predicting greenhouse effect; Weddell Sea as least explored part of the world's sea ice.
