Scientists at work in the Arctic

The Arctic Sunrise is on a month-long expedition in the icy Arctic. Greenpeace is campaigning for a global sanctuary to be declared around the uninhabited area of the North Pole. The data collected by ScanLAB will later be used to create a 3D Point Cloud (or architectural drawing) of the ice floe, made up of thousands of co-ordinated points.
