High Arctic Extreme Science

The 1990 Trans-Ellesmere Island Ski Expedition was the first human-powered, non-Inuit, lengthwise crossing of one the of the largest islands in the High Arctic. From 1992 to 1998, expedition member and scientist, Dr. Robert L. France, published more than a dozen ground-breaking articles in international journals based on expedition research concerning chemical contamination, wildlife distribution and behavior, and garbage littering. These studies, in addition to other, previously unpublished research findings and many photographs from the expedition, are collected here under a single cover for the first time. This work recalls a time when polar expeditions were equal parts both adventure and academic discovery.
