Drifting North: Into the Polar Night
Step out onto an ice floe in the middle of the Arctic Ocean, and watch and listen as scientists race the fading light to set up one of the most ambitious international climate collaborations ever, MOSAiC. The Multidisciplinary Drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate launched in September 2019. Led by the German Alfred Wegener Institute, the mission froze an icebreaker into the Central Arctic Ocean, to better understand the remote region and the role it plays in global climate and weather patterns.
Run time: 1 hour (30 minute film with a 30 minute related science talk + plenty of time to ask questions)
Age recommendation: 12+ (If you're 12 to 99 years of age you'll enjoy this show!)
