About this book

The book grew out of the highly successful science symposium held in Hobart in 1997 as part of Australian National Antarctic Research Expedition (ANARE) Jubilee celebrations.

ANARE was established by the Australian Government in 1947 and charged with exploring and undertaking research in Antarctica. From low-budget beginnings on the sub-Antarctic Heard and Macquarie Islands, ANARE activities became more focused on the Antarctic continent itself and the Southern Ocean.

The symposium brought together 60 Australian scientists from all fields of ANARE research to highlight achievements in their disciplines, to discuss the relevance and importance of their present activities and to look to likely directions into the future. `Australian Antarctic Science - The first 50 years of ANARE' is a very valuable research source that covers historic moments in Antarctic science through to the present and looks to what may lie ahead.
