In 1912, the ""Titanic"" hit an iceberg and sank. Since this time, monitoring ice has been regarded as very important- and extremely difficult. This programme demonstrates the ice-monitoring capabilities of ERS-1, following the voyage of ""L'Astrolabe"" through theNorth-East Passage across the top of Russia. The programme also looks at environmental research in the polar worlds.
