In January 2015 the Norwegian Polar Institute organized an expedition on a research vessel Lance to determine the reasons of climate changes which had happened on the Earth. The vessel had frozen into the ice in the latitude of 83° N, 756km away from Northern Polar and 364km – from earth. She had passively drifted for 6 month. Lance settled in the thick floes (ice field) which had formed from palaeocrystallic ice. Due to strong steel and vessel’s form natural power of ice did not crush her, indeed, Lance weights several thousand tons. Ice could be very dangerous for the people on board, but for climate and eco-system ice is vitally important factor.
