About this book

This essential guide for Antarctic travellers has been fully revised, with updated maps and charts and a new chapter on climate change.

Each year thousands of ship-borne tourists head to the northern Antarctic Peninsula, and in evergrowing numbers. Focusing on the geography and physical setting of this remote and unique region, Antarctic Peninsula: A Visitor’s Guide is a practical companion for the adventure tourist and visiting scientist alike.

The guide is divided into eight chapters, each of which covers a separate aspect of the Antarctic Peninsula environment: geography; geology; weather and climate; the ice sheet; sea ice and icebergs; life on land; The Antarctic Treaty; origin of place names. Each chapter is written by an expert in that subject from British Antarctic Survey – one of the world’s leading environmental research centres and the most respected scientific authority on the region.

Featuring striking images and clear and detailed maps throughout, Antarctic Peninsula: A Visitor’s Guide is packed with essential information, including the variations in climate and weather, geographical statistics, current human activity and the location of research stations, the different types of icebergs to be seen and how they form, and much more.
