According to computer models studied at MIT, a hurricane of extreme magnitude could be generated above a lake or ocean whose temperature exceeds 120 degrees Farenheit. Scientists predict disastrous consequences with winds approaching the speed of sound. Some think that such a hurricane, spawned by an asteroid impact may have caused the ice age that wiped out the dinosaurs.
Sometimes theory becomes reality.
Antarctica. Deep below the frozen surface of the Ross Sea, a sub-glacial volcano erupts. Above it, a geothermal power plant faces certain destruction.

But as the waters heat up, a global disaster of apocalyptic proportions is brewing-a hurricane that could literally tear the earth apart. Between technology and nature, it's war. For Colonel Reed and his crew, it's a suicide mission.
