British Antarctic Survey (BAS) created this website to display its role in the scientific research, surveys, and long term observations of the past and present environments of Antarctica and the surrounding regions. After discovering the mission and organization of BAS, visitors can learn about BAS's interests in Antarctic ice and rising sea levels, climate change, the ozone hole, and the evolution of the geosphere. The site supplies press releases, publications, and materials on meetings and conferences. Researchers can find numerous links to geological, physical, environmental, and biological data resources. Students can explore the ice, rock, and weather of Antarctica. After learning about the difficulties of living and working on this frigid continent, users may have a new appreciation for the researchers' work.
