  • EXPEDITION ANTARCTICA

DESCRIPTION

Join a team of marine scientists as they embark on an unprecedented journey across the Great Southern Ocean.

As part of the International Polar Year, thirteen research ships from around the world conduct an intensive scientific survey of the southern ocean, which is under growing threat from commercial interests and global climate warming. In February 2008, the most ambitious expedition ever by New Zealand’s Research Vessel Tangaroa sets sail for Antarctica. Forty-five scientists and crew voyage into this hostile and unknown environment. Cooped up on the small research vessel for 50 days, they conduct exhaustive science work and make remarkable discoveries. Their dramatic expedition into the heart of the great southern ocean around Antarctica is part of a global effort being made to determine the health and welfare of marine life. It proves to be a gigantic challenge for the ship and the team as they battle ferocious storms, the worst ice conditions for years and heartbreaking personal sacrifice.
