What is “Antarctic Quest”?

Welcome to the Rutgers Antarctic Quest (AQ) Blog.

The “Antarctic Quest: Racing to Understand a Changing Ocean” documentary project combines innovative science, dramatic imagery and a decade of scientific collaboration into a compelling character driven narrative.  This is an unique inter-disciplinary educational project bridging Art, Science and Storytelling funded in part by the National Science Foundation.

Follow us as Oscar Schofield (Rutgers Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences) and film-makers Dena Seidel (Rutgers Center for Digital Filmmaking) and Chris Linder leave New Jersey on December 26, 2012 and travel to Antarctica to join the LongTerm Ecological Research Team at Palmer Station as they explore the most rapid winter warming place on the planet.   This is a journey you won’t want to miss!
