Explore the ends of the world

From the North Pole to the South Pole, the Alfred Wegener Institute ventures deep into the unknown – to places only a handful of us will ever set foot on

Unlike the adventures of Indiana Jones, however, the Alfred Wegener Institute isn’t looking for a golden chalice. They research the effects of climate change on particular ecosystems in the sea, on ice and on land. Their aim is to understand how the activities of humans and nature change the global environment.
