MAR, GEL I CEL: INVESTIGANT LA TERRA DES DE L’ANTÀRTIDA
Antarctica and the ocean that surrounds it play a key role in regulating the Earth's climate, and hold much of the secrets of how our planet works. Preserved today for science, it has historically been the scene of feats and atrocities. The oceanographer Rafael Simó, who has participated in several expeditions to the frozen continent, will tell us about the scientific and geopolitical importance of Antarctica, what research is done and how it is done, and about his personal experience in the landscapes of water and wild life of a place unique in every way.
