There are places within Antarctica where access is tightly restricted to protect outstanding environmental, scientific or cultural values, much as we set aside areas as national parks and nature reserves in Australia.

“Antarctic futures is a timely assessment on good authority which mostly succeeds in integrating the natural and social sciences in order to examine existing and alternative environmental practices.

place Antarctic futures on the compulsory reading lists of all Antarctic scholars and their students – the future leaders in polar science. The Antarctic Treaty is an international governance framework for the Antarctic and Southern Ocean region.

The suite of agreements under the Antarctic Treaty system are purpose-built for the unique geographical, environmental and political characteristics of the Antarctic region.

For more information see our pages on the Antarctic Treaty system. Exploration of Antarctic Subglacial Aquatic Environments: as a framework and sequence for the environmental management decisions that need to be made at both the international and the national levels in accordance with the Antarctic Treaty Protocol.

The Antarctic Environments Portal provides an important link between Antarctic science and Antarctic policy, by allowing easy access to reliable, science-based information on a range of issues relevant to the management of the Antarctic environment.

The primary objective of the information placed in the Portal is to make the best scientific. Antarctic Science provides a truly international forum for the broad spread of studies that increasingly characterise scientific research in the Antarctic. Whilst emphasising interdisciplinary work, the journal publishes papers from environmental management to biodiversity, from volcanoes to icebergs, and from oceanography to the upper atmosphere.

Regarding Environmental Impact Assessments Article 3 (1) of the Protocol states “The protection of the Antarctic environment and dependent and associated ecosystems and the intrinsic value of Antarctica, including its wilderness and aesthetic values and its value as an area for the conduct if scientific research, in particular research.

Chapters address both Antarctic terrestrial and marine ecosystems, and the scientific and management challenges of the future are explored. Reviews “Overall, this book provides a comprehensive overview of Antarctic ecosystems and the open access approach to publication means this volume serves as an easy entre to that literature – many.

issues for implementation of the environmental protocol and recommendations for resolution Many issues about the structure of the implementing legislation have been identified by those whose highest priority is the conduct of science as well as by those whose highest priority is.
