Research from an ice floe

Past climate on the bottom of the polar ocean

Danish geologists have spent a total of several months floating on a giant ice floe in the Arctic Ocean north of Greenland. They had carefully planned the expedition and calculated the direction of the ice floe. But the ice floe drifted in the opposite direction and led the research team over previously uncharted seabed. The results, the Danes brought back home, caused sensation among climate scientists worldwide and is now a valuable knowledge when scientists attempt to predict future climate.
