Chasing Aurora

PRESENTED ON SEP 13, 2014
IN FORSTER @ VOL 3

Judith Conning's passion involves travelling to and indulging in an environment that many of us could not even imagine. North of the arctic circle there exist lands of ice and snow that are invisible to our consciousness but contain a way of life that is unique and is home to the magic that is the Aurora Borealis.

Les Calotte Polaires et le Réchauffement Climatique - Ice Sheets and Global Warming

BY XAVIER FETTWEIS
@ VOL 1 ON NOV 20, 2014

La réponse des deux calottes polaires (Groenland et Antarctique) à une hausse des températures est complètement différente.
La calotte du Groenland pourrait disparaitre à terme si on a une hausse de 3°C alors que celle de l'Antarctique pourrait atténuer dans un premier temps la hausse prévue du niveau de mers. Néanmoins, elle pourrait fondre à la base et se disloquer...

The response of both ice sheets to global change will be fully different.
The Greenland ice sheet would collapse if we have a temperature increase > 3°C while the Antarctica ice could mitigate the sea level rise in a first time. However, it could melt at its basis and break also in future ...

Amongst the Ice

BY TREVOR GILL
@ VOL 28 ON NOV 24, 2016

As one third of the Winnipeg based production company, Build Films, Trevor Gill has shot and directed films focused on the preservation of land and traditional Inuit values throughout the Canadian Arctic. For him, life is a quest for knowledge collected through experiences, adventure and the meeting of minds. A camera in hand affords him the opportunity to travel, tell stories, meet people, and explore new landscapes and cultures a long the way. This past summer he journeyed along the coasts of Greenland, Baffin Island, and Labrador on an educational expedition led by the Ottawa organization Students On Ice.
