Under the Pole - Underwater Polar ExpeditionPléiades observes boat trapped by the ice floe offshore Greenland
Pléiades observes the boat of the Underwater Polar Expedition, Under the Pole, trapped by the ice floe offshore Greenland.
The two masts belonging to the Why, the boat of the underwater polar expedition Under the Pole, cast a two parallel lined shadow on the ice floe. The vessel is trapped by the ice in a cove within Uummannaq bay, located on the west coast of Greenland. At latitude 70° North, the expedition has just spent the long arctic winter aboard a motionless boat.
The expedition aims to study marine life beneath the ice floe through the arctic night. Under The Pole is a series of submarine polar expeditions aiming at exploring the hidden face of Arctic and Antarctic polar regions in their diversities. A new submarine approach providing world unique images and a better scientific knowledge of the environment.
Airbus Defence and Space supports the Under the Pole team by programming its satellites at the key stages of the expedition.
