Synopsis

Come with us on a spectacular 3D ride across, over, and through the magical realms of the most dramatic continent on Earth: Africa. Our guide through this enchanted kingdom is—water. Water crafts wild Africa, conjuring up life wherever it journeys…travelling above the plains on seasonal winds, cascading along raging rivers, or sheltering coral cities. Audiences will be plunged into fantastic places and meet amazing creatures. On the journey through the magical realms of Africa, we’ll discover the fascinating secrets of this enchanted kingdom. How spectacular thermal geysers help turn thousands of flamingos pink, and create the perfect conditions for them to breed; how elephants navigate scorched plains to find hidden water; and why it snows on the equator. It’s an adventure where you will truly believe the real world is more extraordinary.

Synopsis

Weather has always been one of the most dynamic and complex forces shaping our planet, but now it's intensifying in varied and complex ways. Extreme Weather takes us to the frontlines where few have gone.

Among the melting tidewater glaciers of Alaska, National Geographic Emerging Explorer Dr. Erin Pettit leads a young team of researchers into the splash zone at the face of Dawes Glacier aboard a boat custom-designed to get as close as possible to the calving ice. Using a variety of instruments, her team works to measure the rate of melting to help build a more accurate model of global ocean level rise.
