UNDER THE POLE

Who are we?

12 YEARS OF EXPEDITIONS and advanced expertise

The UNDER THE POLE is an underwater exploration program founded in 2008 by Emmanuelle PÉRIÉ-BARDOUT and Ghislain BARDOUT, combining scientific research, innovation and awareness for the oceans knowledge and preservation.

Driven by a pioneering spirit and internationally recognized for its expertise, the UNDER THE POLE organizes innovative diving expeditions in extreme deep and polar environments.

UNDER THE POLE has a global program management approach (definition, organization, means, progress and promotion) within its long missions. The ambitious scientific collaboration with internationally renowned research institutes aims to carry out innovative and promising studies for the mankind, planet and oceans presenrvation.

GET INVOLVED WITH US

If ocean deep diving was yesterday's challenge, today the stake of underwater exploration is different aiming the ability to remain in immersion for a long time and discover and understand the oceans and its life. This is the innovative and pionier vision that actually guides UNDER THE POLE.

Thanks to its expeditions experience, deep scientific diving difficult to access areas, and the desire to put ocean exploration at the service of the common good, in 2021 the UNDER THE POLE launches the DEEPLIFE research program dedicated to the oceans mesophotic zone of 200 m depth exploration, scientific knowledge and preservation.

Inspired by the successful collaboration between the UNDER THE POLE, the French National Centre for Scientific Research and the Island Research Center and Environmental Observatory within the DEEPHOPE deep coral study program from 2018 to 2021, the DEEPLIFE will rely on international scientific partners. It will use advanced diving resources, including the CAPSULE underwater habitats, operated from a new generation oceanographic sailboat - the WHY II - specially designed for scientific diving. The goal is to start the first scientific campaigns in 2022.

The research programs and the geographical areas are defined in collaboration between the UNDER THE POLE and the scientific council made up of international researchers.
