Catlin Arctic Survey: Videos Redux

Yesterday I mentioned that the Catlin Arctic Survey had posted a couple of cool, and interesting videos on their website, but that I couldn’t get them to embed properly here to share them. Today they’ve added them to YouTube, making it a win for all of us.

The first video is an excellent look at what the Expedition Team went through on their journey to the North Pole. It combines Google Earth with the expedition’s tracking data, and photographs from out on the Ice to give us a good indication of what the journey was like. It is very well done, and will give you a new appreciation for polar travel. The second video is an overview of the entire project, which is exploring the impact of acidification on the Arctic Ocean, and how that is effecting life there, and elsewhere on the planet.
