Environmentally Driven or Environmentally Benign Antarctic Research?

  • R. B. Heywood
Part of the Environment and Assessment book series (ENAS, volume 3)


Science is an expression of Humankind’s curiosity about its environment. A venture into scientific research is a true venture into the unknown. The “obvious” is rarely so! An initial line of research usually leads into further lines of research, and an understanding of natural phenomena is haltingly and slowly acquired. The “needs” of the science drives the research. The good scientist does not find this a frustrating but rather a very exciting and intellectually stimulating process. He/she readily embraces the firm intellectual self discipline and strict adherence to protocols of measurement and analysis that science demands for the attainment of true knowledge and understanding.
