Antarctic Science — Global Concerns: Introduction

  • Gotthilf Hempel


The title of this book stems from an international conference held in Bremen, Germany, in September 1991 under the auspices of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR). Its main objectives were to increase public awareness of the importance of Antarctic science, particularly in relation to global problems, and to foster the interaction of Antarctic scientists working in different disciplines. About 500 scientists, students and engineers, as well as politicians and media from all over the world attended the conference. The first 2 days of the conference were concerned with current scientific programmes and results; the last 2 days addressed policy matters and the future directions of Antarctic science.
