Explore Antarctica encourages students to understand the management of the Antarctic environment and issues of global importance linked to the Antarctic. It provides a comprehensive guide to the natural environment of the continent, as well as its history and its future. The book provides a brilliant illustration of how to apply scientific, social and environmental research to a specific topic of study. The author, Dr Louise Crossley, has worked in the Antarctic as an expedition and research station leader, and the book has been approved by the Australian Antarctic Division. The project has been developed by the Australian Surveying and Land Information Group (AUSLIG) of the Commonwealth Government of Australia, and funded by the Australian Antarctic Foundation. It is an authoritative work for students and the interested public alike.
