Notes

Dog power has been used for thousands of years and, in the Arctic, it has survived practically unchallenged until the present, whereas in temperate and tropical areas other animals have taken the place of dogs in helping humans move about. Nowadays dogs are still used for transportation in several areas, but there is also a boom in the recreational use of dogs as tractors, and not only for pulling sleds.

Notes

During travels to polar areas we usually encounter a lot of ice: icebergs, the pack, growlers, glaciers and icicles just to name a few. It is only natural for us modern people to take pictures of these impressive formations to share our experience with friends and family. But taking pictures of ice is tricky and there are several technical aspects to take into consideration before deciding which strategy to employ to capture the awe we feel when admiring these natural phenomena.

Notes

The Midnight Sun or Polar Day is one of the spectacular characteristics of Polar Areas. Similarly, the Polar Night originates from the same physical characteristics of the Earth and its orbit around the Sun. Both the Polar Day and the Polar Night influence our circadian rhythms and, among other effects, present opportunities to enjoy for an extended period of time the moments when the sun is just above or just below the horizon. These are the moments when the colors of the sky are particularly beautiful. Help make this podcast sound better with a donation to the MARIO MICROPHONE FUND.
