University Corporation for Atmospheric Research Abstract:

This video segment, adapted from a NOVA broadcast, shows how sea ice forms in the Southern Ocean around Antarctica and how its seasonal fluctuation dramatically changes the continent. The segment, two minutes thirty-five seconds in length, includes rare footage of the destruction of the British ship 'Endurance', trapped and crushed by sea ice in 1914.
