Arctic exploration holds high risks due to extreme weather conditions and limited navigational and support infrastructure. Sea spray icing on oil and gas rigs or maritime vessels can threaten operations by blocking essential components. Structural stability can be compromised, resulting in increased risk of capsizing. Additional measures must be taken to ensure the safety of the crew, who are more prone to slipping, fatigue and hypothermia.
