ANTARCTICA CRUISES "The ships are truly amazing and exceptionally built for Antarctica cruising. The crew is incredibly helpful" "Like a team of expert staff they are always on hand to assist with your every need and question" Our program of Explore Antarctica voyages onboard our adventure fleet focus on a region of Antarctica that is rarely ice-bound during the southern summer. They visit the South Shetland Islands, the northern and western coasts of the Antarctic Peninsula, the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas) and South Georgia. There are also more unusual programs such as the Classic Antarctica Adventure with SCUBA-diving, sea-kayaking and camping options, or a fabulous voyage traveling the length and breadth of the stunning Falkland Islands Join us on one of four ultimate voyages onboard one of the world's greatest icebreakers, the Kapitan Khlebnikov. We will visit the Far Side of Antarctica to experience a total eclipse of the sun, Emperor Penguin rookeries set in spectacular backdrops of icebergs and glaciers, and the famous Ross Sea - the most historically fascinating part of Antarctic. The Kapitan Khlebnikov is the only passenger ship ever to sail in some of these regions so we will be among a fortunate few to have experienced this remote and challenging side of the continent.

This section is still UNDER CONSTRUCTION!!! In the future it will contain additional climbing and climbing- related resources, and might evolve into a repository of Antarctica-related mountaineering information. For the moment, all you get are a few links to other climbing sites, which you probably already know about (but then again, maybe not!), some common and ordinary climbing photos, and some general comments on Antarctica and mountaineering. More will follow. Send your electronic comments to me at
General Comments
While Antarctica has about 2 percent exposure and 98 percent ice cover, the little bit of rock that does stick through is pretty impressive. The Transantarctic Mountains (TAM) run almost 3000 kilometers and in places approach 4000 meters elevation. Much of the range has a steep escarpment, often 2000 meters high. The TAM bifurcate into two wings, one wing being swallowed under the East Antarctic icecap but the other surging up into the Sentinal Range of the Ellsworth Mountains, home of Vinson Massif, Tyree, and several other 5000 meter giants. The map shows the TAM exclusive of the Sentinal Range (when I get this more together there will be a bigger, better, colored map!) and the

An Alien in Antarctica: Reflections upon Forty Years of Exploration and Research on the Frozen Continent
Charles Swithinbank
An Alien in Antarctica is an eminant polar scientist's account of six expeditions to the "frozen continent" while working with the US Antarctic Program. The book combines first-person narrative and outstanding photography to record the events, the feelings, the results, and the memories of conducting research in one of Earth's most remote and hostile environments. This book is not just about science, but about adventures in the pursuit of science.

Workshop Report: REVEAL: REmote Views and Exploration of Antarctic Lithosphere Workshop: The future of Antarctic airborne geophysical capabilities
Carol A. Finn, U. S. Geological Survey, Sridhar Anandakrishnan, Penn State University, John Goodge, University of Minnesota, Duluth, Kurt Panter, Bowling Green State University, Christine Siddoway, Colorado College and Terry Wilson, The Ohio State University. Antarctica is an integral part of Earth's geodynamic and climatic systems, yet lacks fundamental geologic and geophysical data. Meager exposures record the 3500 million year history of the continental shield that once composed part of the late Proterozoic Rodinia supercontinent. Precambrian structures may have influenced the style and location of younger tectonic and magmatic events that are manifested by the major features of the continent that we see today, such as the Paleozoic and Mesozoic orogenies that formed the Transantarctic Mountains, and Cenozoic volcanic provinces. East and West Antarctica were also key pieces in the early Paleozoic East Gondwana mosaic, formed at a time of major changes in plate configurations, terrestrial surficial process, sea level, and marine geochemistry and biota. Despite the central role that Antarctica has played in shaping the present global environment, fundamental, first-order parameters such as bedrock elevation, lithology, structure, age, tectonic history and ice volume remain poorly known over large portions of the continent. Given the extensive ice cover, airborne geophysical data, constrained by field-based geologic mapping, ground-based geophysics, and petrologic, geochemical and geochronological analysis of outcrop and drill-hole samples, offer the best way to characterize broad areas of the Antarctic. However, the Antarctic program currently lacks an effective means to collect and integrate airborne geophysical with other data under broad science objectives defined by the community. In order to address these issues and the fundamental problems outlined above, the National Science Foundation sponsored an international workshop attended by 45 geologists, geophysicists and glaciologists in Denver, CO in August, 2002.

News Links Lines ... About us
With crystalline icebergs, endless flocks of penguins, breaching whales and picture-perfect landscapes Antarctica offers many compelling reasons to visit. Few are privileged to spend time in this pristine place and fewer still are those who make the passage to this land of sea and ice assured of every comfort, security and convenience.
The spacious, passenger-friendly Explorer II strikes just the right balance between on-board comfort and full-fledged wilderness excitement.
Expeditions planned for the 2003/2004 Antarctic season include:
  • Antarctica and the Falkland Islands combines the pristine wilderness of Antarctica with the rolling moors and wind-swept cliffs of the Falklands Islands. The 16-day holiday cruise is a special family departure that will delight children, parents and grandparents alike. Departs December 21, 2003; from $6,995 per person, double occupancy. Children 7-18 pay 50% of the adult fare when travelling with at least one full-fare paying adult.
  • Antarctica, the Falklands and South Georgia Islands follows in the footsteps of the of great adventurer, Sir Ernest Shackleton. Teeming wildlife, including vast colonies of the unique king penguin, along with fur and elephant seals, make this an unforgettable journey. Expedition #331, 19 days, departs November 22, 2003; from $5,995 per person, double occupancy. Expedition #332, 18 days, departs December 7, 2003; from $5,595 per person, double occupancy.

    antarctica is at the South Pole. During the winter antarctica doubles in sizebecause of the large amount of sea ice that forms at its periphery.
    Antarctica is at the South Pole. It is the 5th largest continent and is the coldest, windiest, highest, and driest continent. It is mostly circular in shape with a long arm—the Antarctic Peninsula—reaching out towards South America, and with two large indentations, the Ross and Weddell seas and their ice shelves. Its total area is about 14.2 million sq km in summer. During the winter Antarctica doubles in size because of the large amount of sea ice that forms at its periphery. During summer, more solar radiation reaches the surface at the South Pole than is received at the Equator in an equivalent period. It is mostly uninhabitable apart from scientists for short periods of time. Nearly all of Antarctica is covered by ice and snow. Parts of Antarctica are claimed by Argentina, Australia, Britain, Chile, France, New Zealand and Norway. The continent consists of about 98% thick continental ice sheet and 2% barren rock, with average elevations between 2,000 and 4,000 meters. Antarctica has several mountain ranges up to 4,897 meters high. Its ice-free coastal areas include parts of southern Victoria Land, Wilkes Land, the Antarctic Peninsula area, and parts of Ross Island on McMurdo Sound. Many glaciers form ice shelves along about half of the coastline, and floating ice shelves constitute 11% of the area of the continent. In Antarctica, severe low temperatures vary with latitude, elevation, and distance from the ocean. East Antarctica is colder than West Antarctica because of its higher elevation. The Antarctic Peninsula has the most moderate climate and higher temperatures occur in January along the coast and average slightly below freezing.
