“Every high-flying, mountain-climbing, spelunking, sailing, trekking, deep-diving explorer has lived adventures and made discoveries that have helped shape the nature of civilization, one way or another. Their stories have become legends. Ah! If only their Rolexes could speak.” Sylvia Earle.
The Deepsea Under the Pole expedition supported by Rolex is a two-month ski trek to the moving polar ice floe of the North Pole. The purpose of this expedition was documentation. With frequent stops to scuba dive, the team took unprecedented underwater images of the vanishing polar ice cap, along with hundreds of scientific observations related to human physiology and global climate change.
