UNDER THE POLE II

UTP II • 2014-2015

“DISCOVERY GREENLAND”

WEST AND NORTH OF GREENLAND (21 MONTHS) – JANUARY 2014 / OCTOBER 2015

This expedition continued the precedent-making trip and made a north-south study of the undersea environment between the North Pole and the Arctic Circle.

It involved a systematic exploration of the sea floor along the west coast of Greenland over more than one season, with winter in the ice caps, between the surface and a depth of 112 m.

“We forged through the extreme north and extreme south, through the most inaccessible and inhospitable expanses of ice, under the ice caps in the heart of winter, or around icebergs that melt in summer, undersea exploration of the polar regions, to the greatest depths accessible to humans.”
