The expedition, scheduled between March 23 and April 20 of 2017, will take place on two Patagonian glaciers that are originated on the ice cap of the Hielo Continental Sur: the Perito Moreno, located in the "Parque de los Glaciares" in Argentina, and the Tyndall that instead is located in the Chilean Park "Torres del Paine". The expedition, whose objectives are the geographical and speleological explorations, but above all the scientific researchs, is part of a series of explorations started in the early 90s in Patagonia and Greenland as part of a study on the main glaciers and ice caps of the Planet.
