A Voyage to Antarctica

Al Jazeera’s Tarek Bazley joined the Swiss Polar Institute and its team of climate scientists who spent three months circumnavigating the continent. Here’s their stunning interactive documentary

Antarctica, one of the most remote and desolate locations on earth also functions as one of the world's main cooling systems. However, after decades of greenhouse gas emissions and global warming, parts of the continent are now warming faster than anywhere else on the planet. To understand how the region is changing, a group of 55 scientists commissioned by the Swiss Polar Institute boarded the research vessel Academic Treshnikov to conduct 22 experiments around the continent.
