SYNOPSIS

The Polar Observer: a revolutionary observation module for a scientific adventure in the Arctic. A four month solitary expedition with an hearty adventurer. April 2002. Jean-Louis Etienne will board the Polar Observer, a revolutionary observation module, and head for the heart of an ocean of ice to begin another human and scientific adventure. This solitary expedition will make an exceptional contribution to research programs on the arctic environment. It is here that the angoing global climatic changes can be read : the ice pack, which has lost 40% of his thickness and 6% of his surface in 40 years, has become the very symbol of this phenomenon. Dropped off at the North Pole by a giant Russian Army helicopter, Polar Observer and its single occupant will drift with the ice pack for more than three months, carried away toward Svalbard by the great transpolar current. During these four months we will also follow the ”inner voyage” of this hearty adventurer.
