Italian term or phrase: resistere alla stretta dei ghiacci
Contesto:

Alla fine dell'Ottocento, un contributo notevole fu dato dal norvegese Fridtjof Nansen. Egli aveva constatato che sulle coste groenlandesi venivano talvolta ritrovati dei pezzi di legno di origine siberiana; ritenne perciò che le acque del Glacial Arctic Sea si spostassero dalle coste dell'Alaska e della Siberia verso la Greenland. Nansen progettò allora di lasciarsi trascinare dal movimento naturale della banchisa polare con una nave, costruita appositamente per resistere alla stretta dei ghiacci.

Grazie Mille,
