19 volumes, An authoritative outlet for biological and physical research conducted in Antarctica. The series was designed to complement Antarctic field work, much of which consists of cooperative, interdisciplinary projects. Stunning photos show what daily life in Antarctic research stations is really like NASA's photos of a perfectly but a s recipe book from the British Rothera Research Station shows that Author: Peter Kotecki.

This book is the first to describe the development of scientific activity in the Antarctic (as distinct from exploration) in all its aspects. Coverage spans three centuries, starting with Halley who laid the foundations of geophysics which was to be the principal driving force behind Antarctic science for most of its history.5/5(2).

Numerous Antarctic research ships cruise the waters that surround the continent, and in addition to conducting their own research, they also help some of the land-based research stations with their projects.

Research ships to Antarctica are generally deployed by single countries, and they are outfitted with facilities to aid in the research process.
