Antarctic Peninsula A Visitor's Guide by British Antarctic Survey

Antarctic Peninsula: A Visitor's Guide is the essential companion for anyone planning to visit this unique place. Focusing on the geography and physical phenomena of this remote region, it contains vital information visitors will need before and during their trip, including the variations in climate and weather, geographical statistics, human activity and the location of research stations, the different types of icebergs to be seen and more. The guidebook is divided into seven chapters, each of which covers a separate aspect of the Antarctic Peninsula environment: geography, exploration, geology, climate and weather, glaciology, sea ice and icebergs, and plants. Drawing on the world-class scientific and cartographic expertise of the British Antarctic Survey, and featuring images from their extensive photography collection, this is the definitive guide to the region.
