About this book

The Soils of Antarctica divides Antarctica into eight ice-free regions and provides information on the soils of each region. Soils have been studied in Antarctica for nearly 100 years. Although only 0.35% (45 000 km2) of Antarctica is ice-free, its weathered, unconsolidated material qualify as "soils". The Soils of Antarctica is richly illustrated with nearly 150 images and provisional maps are provided for several key ice-free areas.

Contents

- Soils of Antarctica: History and Challenges
- Soil-forming Factors in Antarctica
- Soils of Queen Maud Land
- Soils of Enderby Land
- Soils of MacRobertson Land
- Soils of Wilkes Land
- Soils of North Victoria Land (Northern Transantarctic Mountains)
- Soils of Central Victoria Land
- Soils of Southern Victoria Land, the Transantarctic Mountains

Media reviews

"Jim Bockheim [...] has co-ordinated a volume of 17 chapters by about 30 authors and co-authors, although he has had a guiding hand in most of the chapters. [...] The book is well illustrated and contains many colour photographs, which will help those who are unlikely to gain first-hand experience of Antarctica, and tables of data. Each chapter is extensively referenced, usually to original survey information or primary research papers, which is to be commended."
– D. W. Hopkins, European Journal of Soil Science, Vol. 67, November, 2016
