Into the Polar Night

Take an epic expedition to the Artic Ocean to discover the importance ice for planet Earth!  The Arctic sea ice groans and creaks as a massive icebreaker slowly churns through. Scientists on an ice flow call out to each other in the dark as a chainsaw cuts through the ice, exposing open ocean below.  Journey with scientists on one of the most ambitious international climate collaborations ever, MOSAiC.

The Multidisciplinary Drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate seeks to gain a better understand of the Artic region and the role it plays in global climate and weather patterns.
