Antarctica: Fact Sheet

Although the continent is one of geographic and meteorological extremes, Antarctica abounds with life. Large populations of whales, seals, penguins and other native sea birds live on or near the coasts of Antarctica. The continent is also home to a number of plant species, which despite the harsh climate and rocky terrain manage to thrive. And, as testament to Antarctica's inhospitable environment, it is the only continent where humans are not indigenous and have never flourished.
Oil Exploration
Nevertheless, following the energy crisis of the 1970s, several oil companies looked to Antarctica as a possible solution to future world oil shortages by announcing plans to exploit the continent's resources. The necessary conditions for economically-sound oil production projects were beginning to ripen along with high oil prices and demand, and improved drilling technology. The prospect that Antarctica's fragile wildnerness could be tainted as a result of oil exploration and drilling activities resulted in the mobilization of several conservation groups who were intent on preserving the continent's status as the most pristine in the world.

Polar Museums directory
This directory provides brief details of museums with collections relating to the Arctic and Antarctic. It is very much a work in progress and information about other museums, as well as corrections to existing entries are welcomed. The directory was compiled by William Mills, Librarian and Keeper of Collections at the Scott Polar Research Institute, as part of a new reference work Keyguide to information sources on the polar and cold regions (Mansell, 1998). However, so much information has now been gathered on so many subjects that this museums directory has been spun off as a separate resource.

Antarctica The exhibits of this department tell about the environment of the seventh Continent, the history of its exploration and discovery, the most important foreign expeditions in Antarctica and about Russian (former Soviet) Antarctic expeditions. The Russian navigators F. Bellinsghausen and M. Lazarev were the first to reached the coast of the Antarctica Continent. Two small sailing boats "Vostok" and "Mirnyi"; pushed through the storms and fogs, drifting ice belt and chain of giant icebergs to reach the Continent on the 28 th of January, 1820. Later the Continent was called the Antarctic (opposite to the Arctic). They circumnavigated the Continent, nine times approached the ice barrier and discovered some islands they named "Peter the First Island" and "Alexander the First Land". The exhibits devoted to this great geographical discovery of the XIX century show the pages from real log books of the ships and a model of the schooner "Vostok". At the same time as F. Bellinsghausen and M. Lazarev sailed around Antarctica, British and American whalers made several geographic discoveries in the region of South - Shetland Islands and the approach routs to the Antarctic Peninsula. The most significant contribution in the exploration of Antarctica was made by the expeditions led by Dumount d'Urville (France), Captain Wilkes (USA), Ross (Britain). At the end of XIX century a number of leading world geographers proposed to pool their efforts in the study of the ice continent. However, until the middle of the present century the research was carried out on a national basis.

More information on Antarctica AMUNDSEN, ROALD Roald Amundsen (1872-1928) was a Norwegian polar explorer who was the first person to fly over the North Pole in a dirigible (May 11-13, 1926) and was the first person to reach the South Pole. Amundsen and his small expedition reached the South Pole on December 14, 1911, traveling by dog sled. Amundsen was also the first person to sail around the world through the Northeast and Northwest passages, from the Atlantic to the Pacific (in 1905). He was the first person to reach both the North and South Poles. Amundsen died in a plane crash attempting to rescue his friend, the Italian explorer Umberto Nobile who was lost in an airship. For more information on Amundsen, click here BYRD, RICHARD E. Admiral Richard Evelyn Byrd (1888-1957) was an Arctic and Antarctic explorer, pioneering aviator, and US Naval Officer. On May 9, 1926, Byrd (the navigator) and Floyd Bennett (the pilot) made what may have been the first airplane trip over the North Pole, in a 15 1/2 hour flight; they flew from King's Bay, Spitsbergen, Norway, to the North Pole and back again. There is a dispute as to whether or not they actually reached the pole. He also made many trips to Antarctica.

Altitude is the height of an area, measured from sea level. ANALEMMA The analemma is a figure-8-shaped diagram that shows the declination of the sun (the angle that the sun is from the equator), for each day in the year. If you took a snapshot of the the sun at the same time each day (from the same location), the Sun would make a figure shaped like an analemma during the course of a year (this is because the Earth is tilted on its axis and because it doesn't orbit the Sun in a perfect circle). ASTROLABE An astrolabe is an instrument that was used to determine the altitude of objects (like the sun) in the sky. It was first used around 200 B.C. by astronomers in Greece. The astrolabe was replaced by the sextant BUCCANEER A buccaneer was a pirate from the Caribbean.

The Fliers' Globe Exemplifies 20th Century Exploration
T he American Geographical Society (AGS) possesses a wondrous globe that extols the history of geographic exploration in the 20th century. It's called "The Fliers' and Explorers' Globe" or sometimes just "The Fliers' Globe," and it has belonged to the society since 1929. The globe's story truly befits the end of a millennium and the beginning of the next, because it tells us where we've been and asks us where we're going.
U.S. President John F. Kennedy (far left) and Vice President Lyndon Johnson (back left) watch John Glenn sign the Fliers' Globe. In monetary terms, the globe certainly stands among the most valuable on Earth. Measuring 18 inches in diameter, it was constructed by Rand McNally and donated to the society by John H. Finley, society president from 1925 to 1934 and later editor in chief of the New York Times. The globe's extraordinary value, however, lies in what's been scribbled and scrawled across its surface. Priceless Graffiti Picture an antique globe with Charles Lindbergh's route etched across the Atlantic and signed in his own hand. How much would such a "collectible" bring at Sotheby's?

Resource Sharing in Antarctica:
III. Does the Minerals Convention Pose a Threat to the Antarctic Environment?
Since it became apparent that the mineral negotiations would be successfully concluded with the adoption of the Convention, the Consultative Parties have come under attack for their alleged attempt at opening Antarctica for commercial mining. The environmentalist associations that are in the forefront of this attack of course do not conceive of Antarctica being opened to minerals exploitation even under the most rigorous system of supervision. Their position, as already mentioned, is uncompromising in their demand that the whole continent be declared a world park. Whether this option will prevail in the long run, or whether Antarctica will be opened to mineral resource activities under the 1988 Convention is, for the time being, only a matter of speculation. What is certain now is that all the states active in Antarctica have shown that they are not willing to exclude the option of mineral activities in that continent. Therefore, even if one were to hope that the continent of Antarctica should in the future remain immune from mineral activities, it is nonetheless realistic to assume that some mineral activities may be considered in the future as an acceptable risk by those states that hitherto have engaged in scientific exploration and investigation of Antarctica. In this perspective, it is important to assess as objectively and impartially as possible to what degree the new Convention provides a guarantee for the environment.

The search for antarctica was the last great adventure of global exploration.The first recorded sightings of the continent occurred in 1820.
While the existence of Antarctica was not confirmed until the nineteenth century, the early Greeks had already named the land mass around the south pole "opposite of the Arctic" or Antarctica. The Greeks believed that the earth was a sphere and if a northern landmass existed there must be a southern landmass to symmetrically balance the known world The search for Antarctica was the last great adventure of global exploration. The first recorded sightings of the continent occurred in 1820. These sightings were part of the Age of Discovery, in which whalers and sealers sought to exploit the natural resources of the icy Antarctic waters. This was followed by the most decorated era of exploration, the Heroic Era. This era was characterized by great explorers such as Robert Scott, Ernest Shackleton, Douglas Mawson, and Roald Amundsen. They ventured into the interior of the continent seeking the most prestigious prize of their day, the South Pole. Today, scientists travel to Antarctica to conduct scientific inquiry. More than 3,000 people each year work on research projects. They study wildlife, ocean depth, and prehistoric issues.

The Polar Regions For hundreds of years the icy areas at each end of the Earth have challenged explorers. Many brave individuals have risked their lives and some have lost them investigating the frigid regions of the Arctic and Antarctic. Some of these heroes were driven by the explorer's longing to make the first footprints in an unknown land. Others were seeking short sailing routes from Europe. Still others were searching for good sealing and whaling grounds. For many years, reaching the North Pole, and then the South Pole, was the supreme challenge to daring explorers.
