Exposición «El Ártico se rompe» en la plaza del Centro Cultural de Los Cristianos

La Fundación CajaCanarias y la Obra Social ”la Caixa”, en colaboración con el Ayuntamiento de Arona, presentan
la exposición El Ártico se rompe.

Que el Ártico se rompe no es ninguna novedad, lo certifican las cifras. En septiembre de 2012 se superó el mínimo histórico de hielo en la banquisa polar. La superficie helada se redujo el 18 % con respecto al anterior mínimo, una pérdida que equivale casi al doble de la superficie de España. En los últimos veinticinco años se han perdido tres cuartas partes de la capa de hielo marino del océano Ártico. El grosor medio de ese hielo marino es hoy el 50 % menor que hace unas décadas. Ante esta situación, dentro de treinta años el océano Ártico podría quedar sin hielo durante el verano.

La exposición de la Fundación CajaCanarias y la Obra Social ”la Caixa” El Ártico se rompe tiene por objeto mostrar la singularidad de los ecosistemas del Polo Norte, detallando el importante papel que juegan en el clima global, así como sus características físicas y su biodiversidad. Y todo ello, a través de un centenar de impactantes fotografías de uno de los más prestigiosos fotógrafos de naturaleza, Andoni Canela. Las instantáneas de este vasto, inhóspito e impresionante territorio, realizadas expresamente para la muestra, permitirán a los visitantes recorrer los 200 metros cuadrados que ocupa la exposición.

Para conocer más de cerca estos valiosos ecosistemas y valorar su importancia, la muestra se presenta dividida en cuatro ámbitos: el clima ártico, la vida en una situación extrema, la huella humana y las luces del norte.

La muestra podrá verse en un exclusivo e innovador espacio que recrea el gélido ambiente del Ártico. En su interior será posible descubrir, por ejemplo, por qué no se congelan las patas de los animales, o si el oso polar es en realidad blanco, además de escuchar un cuento inuit-yupik, música sami y un sinfín de cosas más que acercarán a los visitantes al Ártico. La exposición organizada por la Fundación CajaCanarias y la Obra Social “la Caixa”, en colaboración con el Ayuntamiento de Arona, podrá visitarse en la Plaza del Pescador (Los Cristianos) de Arona, hasta el próximo 15 de mayo de 2018.


El alcalde de Arona, José Julián Mena; el director de Acción Cultural y Educativa de la Fundación CajaCanarias, Álvaro Marcos Arvelo; la directora de Área de Negocio de CaixaBank en Tenerife Sur-La Gomera, Pilar Ramos y el comisario de la muestra, Toni Pou, han presentado hoy la exposición itinerante El Ártico se rompe, una singular muestra cuya finalidad es dar a conocer el importantísimo papel de los ecosistemas del Polo Norte y concienciar de la importancia de la conservación de la región polar.

Las altas temperaturas de los últimos veranos han acelerado el deshielo superficial del Ártico. Las fracturas de icebergs no hacen más que evidenciar los síntomas del proceso de transformación de una de las zonas más sensibles de la Tierra. Estos cambios, que están desencadenando una aceleración del cambio climático, afectarán al clima de todo el planeta.

La exposición pretende fomentar el pensamiento crítico y sensibilizar sobre un problema medioambiental importante: los efectos del cambio climático en el Ártico y sus consecuencias para el resto del planeta.

Una parte importante de la exposición está formada por las fotografías de Andoni Canela, que ha viajado por Groenlandia, Alaska, Canadá, Svalbard, Islandia, Rusia y Laponia y nos acerca a la realidad reciente de la región ártica.

El Ártico se rompe cuenta también con audiovisuales que explican qué es una aurora boreal o las diversas clases de hielo, e interactivos donde, entre otros, se muestra cómo se deshacen los casquetes polares y es posible observar el pelo de un oso polar, líquenes y plantas carnívoras.

Además, un conjunto de piezas procedentes de Nunavut (Canadá) y el norte de Alaska nos acercan a la vida y cultura de sus habitantes. Los visitantes pueden escuchar un cuento inuit-yupik y música sami, sintiéndose inmersos en la extraordinaria región ártica.

Un exclusivo e innovador espacio creado especialmente para la muestra simula un paseo entre icebergs. Las piezas e imágenes que integran la exposición están dispuestas sobre paredes irregulares y geométricas que recuerdan las paredes de hielo y juegan con sus numerosas gradaciones de blancos y azules. 

El clima ártico

Los glaciares y ecosistemas árticos encierran la historia del clima de nuestro planeta. También son valiosos indicadores de las alteraciones climáticas que están ocurriendo en la actualidad. Por ello su valor es incalculable para la ciencia, y los científicos trabajan en distintos programas de investigación centrados en el Ártico.

A lo largo del recorrido de este ámbito se muestran las diferencias existentes entre los tipos de hielo que se encuentran en la región ártica: icebergs, glaciares, banquisa… Se explica el papel que juegan como reguladores en el clima terrestre, constatándose su importancia. También se puede disfrutar de la belleza de las formas de los cristales con los que se forma el hielo. Y un multimedia esférico descubre la duración de la noche ártica y otras muchas singularidades.

La vida en una situación extrema

A pesar del duro clima, el ecosistema ártico acoge a gran variedad de seres vivos. Estas especies han desarrollado significativas estrategias que les permiten aislarse o soportar el frío, caminar sobre la nieve y camuflarse en el entorno.

 Con la disminución del hielo ártico, animales como los osos polares podrían estar en peligro, algunas aves migratorias llegarán a perder sus nidadas debido a la falta de terreno estable, y algunos de los vegetales más resistentes del planeta, como son los musgos y los líquenes que pueblan la tundra, podrán ser sustituidos por especies más meridionales.

En el Ártico, animales y plantas se han convertido en maestros de la supervivencia. En este ámbito es posible conocer distintas estrategias de adaptación tanto en plantas como en animales. Entre ellas, el caso del charrán ártico, que es capaz de dar la vuelta al mundo y regresar cada verano al mismo sitio, o plantas que comen insectos, entre otras particularidades.

 La huella humana

Más de veinte grupos étnicos viven alrededor del océano Ártico. Ahora intentan adaptarse a las modificaciones que el cambio global está produciendo en su entorno, luchando por no perder sus tradiciones.

Para acercarnos a los habitantes del Ártico y conocer su forma de vida, se muestra la ropa y los utensilios de los inuit, maquetas de las casas donde viven, etc., todo ello con el fin de aproximarnos a su cultura.

Bajo el hielo se esconden grandes tesoros, como por ejemplo gas natural, petróleo, carbón, hierro, níquel y oro. La presión económica es muy fuerte y muchos esperan las oportunidades que supondrá la desaparición del hielo. ¿Qué ocurrirá con este valioso ecosistema?

Las luces del norte

Las auroras boreales constituyen un maravilloso espectáculo celeste. Se producen cuando partículas originadas en el Sol (viento solar) alcanzan la atmósfera terrestre. Entender cómo se originan estos fenómenos y disfrutar de la contemplación de las auroras boreales escuchando leyendas inuit servirá para poner punto final a la muestra.

  76. I realized more new stuff on this weight loss issue. Just one issue is a good nutrition is very vital whenever dieting. A big reduction in fast foods, sugary food items, fried foods, sugary foods, red meat, and white flour products could be necessary. Holding wastes unwanted organisms, and toxins may prevent objectives for losing belly fat. While a number of drugs for the short term solve the challenge, the bad side effects are not worth it, and they also never present more than a temporary solution. It is just a known fact that 95% of fad diet plans fail. Thanks for sharing your thinking on this website.
