Arctic / Antarctic - Survival in Ice

Arktis / Antarktis

Arctic and Antarctic have the most arid and cold places on Earth. Both have snow and ice,  northern and southern lights,  blizzards and snow storms. Antarctica is a continental land mass but the Arctic is a sea with edges of other countries in the Arctic circle.

The exhibition looks at the aspects of indegenous people, the food chain, flora and fauna, light phenomena and wind and weather. The interplay of ocean currents is very important to climate.
