Discovering Antarctica (British Antarctic Survey)

Antarctica is a frozen, windswept continent, so hostile and remote that it has no permanent inhabitants.

Scientists working here have made many discoveries from studying Antarctica’s land and atmosphere, and from clues buried beneath the ice. These discoveries also reveal signs of changes in the future that could affect us all.

This award winning site contains resources for all age groups.
