The Australian Antarctic Research Program in Focus

  • Bruce Davis
Part of the Environment and Assessment book series (ENAS, volume 3)

Abstract

The principal aim of this paper is to illustrate the manner in which increased political and community interest in Antarctica is shifting the focus of Australian Antarctic research towards environmental management, creating some tensions amongst bureaucrats and scientists as to program priorities and funding allocations (Davis 1990).
