Description
 
Luis H. Mericq (a.); Bradley C. Hosmer (foreword). Antarctica is commonly viewed as a barren, inaccessible, frozen land, but in fact it is rich in oil, natural gas, & high-grade ore, & one of the few places where different nations are sharing scientific knowledge. This volume recounts the short history of Antarctic explorations & discoveries, & describes the diverse physical characteristics of the region. Analyzes the pressures -- environmental & political -- that threaten its future development. Examines the successful Antarctic Treaty of 1959, an agreement which has promoted the peaceful sharing of scientific research & the resolution of political issues. Concludes by making a case for the Antarctic claims of Chile, which, by reasons of geography & history, has a long & abiding interest in the continent. Illustrated.
