Main Description
Sought by explorers for centuries as a possible trade route. Until 2009, the Arctic pack ice prevented regular marine shipping throughout most of the year, but climate change has reduced the pack ice, and this Arctic shrinkage has made the waterways more navigable. The Polar Explorer explores one of the first scientific expeditions through the Passage, focusing on the effects of climate change in this Arctic region.
