Each year thousands of ship-borne tourists head to the northern Antarctic Peninsula, and in ever-growing numbers. Focusing on the geography and physical setting of this remote and unique region, the Antarctic Peninsular guidebook is a comprehensive and practical companion for the adventure tourist and visiting scientist alike.
The guide is divided into seven chapters, each of which covers a separate aspect of the Antarctic Peninsula environment: Geography; Exploration and human activity; Geology; Glaciology; Sea ice and icebergs; Plants. Each chapter is written by and attributed to an expert in that area from the British Antarctic Survey – one of the world’s leading environmental research centres and the most respected scientific authority on the region.
Featuring lots of striking images and clear and detailed maps throughout, the Antarctic Peninsular guidebook is packed with essential travel advice, 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.
