Polar Ice Worlds

About the event

The Polar Regions are some of the most spectacular yet vulnerable places on Earth. Discover how climate change is affecting these regions and how scientists are studying these changes as you join the Polar Night cruise of the Arctic PRIZE project in this set of amazing films. 

Discover the consequences of increased light in ocean environments as melting sea ice lets more light into the Arctic surface waters. 

Find out whether there is a link between a warming Arctic and increases in extreme weather events across the globe. 

And see how marine life is responding to rising ocean temperatures and the effects this will have on Arctic ecosystems. 

The research project was led by the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) and look out for regular Edinburgh Science and Dynamic Earth collaborator Dr Sian Henley who took part in the cruise.

Presented by Dynamic Earth in association with partners at The University of Edinburgh
