The Screen Guide

Camped on one of the world's most spectacular and dangerous landscapes, a team of scientists prepare to embark on a ground-breaking experiment. Their location is the magnificent Amery Ice Shelf, a massive floating platform which accounts for 16% of the East Antarctic ice sheet. Their goal is to drill a series of holes 380 metres through the ice shelf and into the cavity beneath. By creating this peephole in the ice, the scientists will be able to collect vital information on the melt and refreezing processes critical to understanding global ocean circulation, and shaping our future response to climate change.
