The Inuit and their predecessors adapted and thrived for thousands of years in what is arguably the harshest environment on earth. Today, the Arctic is the focus of intense research. Instead of seeking to conquer the north, scientist pioneers are searching for answers to some troubling questions about the impacts of human activities around the world on this fragile and largely uninhabited frontier. Join in on the ongoing mission to explore the Arctic, and hear the compelling stories of forays into this captivating place. Underlying these tales is the crucial role that ice plays in the northern environment and the changes that are impacting the people and animals who have adapted to this land of ice and snow.
