Discover what it's like to undertake field research on the most remote and inhospitable continent on Earth and find out how the rapid changes taking place here have the potential to affect the entire planet.
Antarctica might be far away, but with climate change causing receding glaciers and collapsing ice shelves it has the potential to affect all of our lives through the connections between the ice sheets, our atmosphere and our ocean. Find out how scientists are investigating this enigmatic continent, see what it’s like to study glaciers from a tent in Antarctica, and discover how scientists are studying past changes to predict future change.
