Antarctica by W. N Bonner( Book )

21 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in English and held by 953 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Antarctica is the coldest and driest continent on Earth - a place for adventure and a key area for global science. Research conducted there has received increasing international attention due to concerns over destruction of the ozone layer and the problem of global warming and melting ice shelves. This dramatically illustrated new book brings together an international group of leading Antarctic scientists to explain why the Antarctic is so central to understanding the history and potential fate of our planet. It introduces the beauty of the world's greatest wilderness, its remarkable attributes and the global importance of the international science done there. Spanning topics from marine biology to space science this book is an accessible overview for anyone interested in the Antarctic and its science and governance."--Pub. desc
Antarctic science by D. W. H Walton( Book )

12 editions published between 1986 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This beautifully illustrated book reviews the development of science in Antarctica from its early beginnings, in the age of Captain Cook, to the present complexity of the 1980s when research teams from many nations work side by side. Three major areas, biological science, the earth sciences and atmospheric science are examined individually, highlighting the principal achievements of the past 25 years, and providing an up-to-date account of our present understanding of this frozen continent. Concern over the future of the Antarctic Treaty and the probable main directions of future research, provide an indication of the importance of Antarctica to all scientific disciplines. This unique natural laboratory for science is now being investigated by eighteen countries. International interest in Antarctica grows apace and, whatever its future use by mankind, its sensible management will require a good, scientific basis
Environmental contamination in Antarctica : a challenge to analytical chemistry by S Caroli( )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thought-provoking and ambitious volume surveys the causes and extent of environmental contamination in Antarctica, and looks critically at future prospects. It highlights the key role that modern techniques of analytical chemistry play in achieving reliable empirical data in this field and their impact on shaping legal provisions. Written by prominent scientists and experts in Antarctic sciences, this work gives an overview of the studies undertaken by countries to assess the impact of pollution phenomena on the uniquely clean environment of Antarctica. Empirical studies and regulatory issues are evaluated in context with the goal of providing a model approach to more polluted areas of the world

Primary succession on land( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accepting that it is at the microscopic level that any consideration of primary succession must start, this volume draws together microbiologists, ecologists, botanists and zoologists into a more coherent discussion of the early stages of community development. New techniques allow observation and experimentation at the microbial level, and the ecological opportunities offered by the Mount St Helens eruption have been exploited to shed more light on the processes of primary succession
