An expedition for Arctic
“It’s not just the many miles we had to cover or the long passes we had to cross.
It’s the extreme temperatures we would encounter, the icebergs we had to navigate between, the thick fog that often covers everything in these latitudes and you can’t even see your bow.
The moving sheets of ice that usually cover a large area, are quickly transported by the wind.
The strong magnetic fields render conventional compasses completely useless since their deviation exceeds 50%.”
