DescriptionIn this highly informative book, Professor Julian Dowdeswell and Professor Michael Hambrey walk us through a detailed account of life on a continent that is as beautiful as it is unforgiving. A richly illustrated account of the Antarctic continent, covering the physical environment, biology and history. It also examines the future and environmental implications for the rest of the planet. The book draws on the authors own experiences during many seasons of fieldwork on the continent and surrounding oceans. They use photographs and images from their own extensive and continent-wide collections and from the world-renowned archives of the Scott Polar Research Institute.
