“Into the Dark”

Battling subzero temperatures and forty-foot seas, a team of scientists embark on a perilous winter expedition into the darkest regions of the Arctic.

Their mission: to understand how trace amounts of light may be radically altering the mysterious world of the polar night. What they discover has implications for the global climate and the future of the Arctic.

Scientists from the Arctic PRIZE project participated on the Norwegian Arctic SIZE cruise to the Arctic Ocean, led by Jørgen Berge, in January 2018.
