Request for help: study designed to investigate the experience of Antarctic employment

I am a student at the University of Tasmania and have an interest in Antarctic research as my father-in-law and husband have spent considerable time ‘down south’.

Atlas of polar seafloor unveiled

The most comprehensive and high-resolution atlas of the seafloor of both Polar Regions is presented this week (Tuesday 25 April) at the European Geosciences Union General Assembly (EGU) in Vienna. Over 250 marine geologists and glaciologists from around the world have spent the last four years collating stunning seafloor and glacial landform images to publish the new Atlas of Submarine Glacial Landforms. This new compilation enables researchers to interpret the history of the Earth’s large ice sheets and view how environmental change has re-shaped the continents.
