During their journey to the Pole of Inaccessibility (POI), the remotest point of the Antarctic, the expedition of six men, led by Captain Choi Do-hyung, discovers a journal that was left behind by a British expedition 80 years earlier. The journal was remarkably preserved in a box in the snow and Kim Min-jae, another member of the expedition, gets the job of examining it. It turns out that the two expeditions shared the same goal and soon other strange similarities between them start to show up. Will they make it to their destination before the sun goes down for the Antarctic winter?
Antarctic was a Swedishsteamship built in Drammen, Norway in 1871. She was used on several research expeditions to the Arctic region and to Antarctica through 1898-1903. In 1895 the first confirmed landing on the mainland of Antarctica was made from this ship.
Antarctic was a barque with three masts and equipped with a steam engine. Build in 1871 at Holmen in Drammen under the name Cap Nor.
In the early 1890s Norwegian ship-owner Svend Foyn wanted to expand his business to the Antarctic Ocean thereby needing capable ships. Foyn then purchased Cap Nor, made extensive repairs and after completion renamed the ship Antarctic. From 1893 the ship was deployed to the Antarctic ocean for whale hunting.
In 1897 the ship was purchased by Alfred Gabriel Nathorst for his planned expedition to Svalbard. Again extensive repairs were made prior to the expedition in 1898.
The Antarctic ice sheet was even more unstable in the past than previously thought, and at times possibly came close to collapse, new research suggests ... "With a big ice sheet on the continent like we have today, Antarctic winds usually blow from the continent out to the sea ... The paper, published in the journal Nature Geoscience, is entitled.
Antarctic explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton had to return home after voyaging close to the South Pole in 1901 due to a bout of 'beriberi' and not scurvy, a new study claims ... The Antarctic explorer had to return home after struggling with deteriorating health, which previous theories suggested was linked to scurvy or a congenital heart defect.
Antarctic uncertainty. The study, published in the journal Nature, found that the average contribution to sea level rise from melting ice at 1.5C was 13 centimetres (five inches) by 2100, compared to the 25 centimetres currently projected ... Catastrophic sea-level rise from Antarctic melting possible with severe global warming.

Global sea level rise associated with the possible collapse of the WestAntarctic Ice Sheet has been significantly underestimated in previous studies, meaning sea level in a warming world will be greater than anticipated, according to a new study from Harvard researchers ... 10.1126/sciadv.abf7787 Journal information.
The study, published Thursday in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, found that over a third of the area of all Antarctic ice shelves — including 67% of area on the Antarctic Peninsula — could be at risk of collapsing if global temperatures soar to 4°C above pre-industrial levels.
As climate change is making temperatures soar, more than a third of the Antarctic's ice shelf could be at risk of collapsing into the sea, and causing global sea-levels to rise, new research has shown ... ice shelf area on the Antarctic Peninsula, would be at risk of destabilisation.
The research, published in the Geophysical Research Letters journal, found that 34 per cent of the area of all Antarctic ice shelves -- around half a million square kilometers -- including 67 per cent of ice shelf area on the Antarctic Peninsula, would be at risk of destabilisation under such a warming scenario.

The findings, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, suggest that 4C warming could leave 34% of the area of all the Antarctic ice shelves – amounting to about half a million square kilometres – at the risk of collapse ... “Previous research has given us the bigger picture in terms of predicting Antarctic ice shelf decline.
Young science student Anzac Gallete has teamed up with the AntarcticHeritageTrust in an effort to get youngsters to care about a place that they've never been and for most of them, a place they'll never get to ... But the journal has a 21st century twist ... The Antarctic Heritage Trust is hoping it will connect and enthuse a new generation.
An analysis of historic and projected simulations from 19 global climate models shows that, because of climate change, the temperature in the Antarctic peninsula will increase by 0.5 to 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2044 ... The estimates were published recently in the journal Climate Dynamics ... Antarctic Peninsula at warmest in decades.
The melting of the Earth's ice cover intensified in the 20th century, with glaciers and sea ice in the Arctic and Antarctic regions melting at alarming speeds ... Sato points out, "The impacts of climate variabilities over the mid-latitudes of the Southern Hemisphere on this Antarctic warming have yet to be quantified."
