Abstract/Summary

Stretching back to Scott's doomed Terra Nova expedition, the enigmatic polar regions have long been a source of fascination for explorers and scientists alike. Today the polar regions remain a fertile ground for scientific exploration, serving as natural, interdisciplinary laboratories for the pursuit of new knowledge that can refine our understanding of the Earth system. However, the reality of climate change has meant they have taken on a new poignancy, for these frozen worlds are undergoing rapid changes with global impacts.
