Antarctica is the only major part of the Earth's landmass not directly governed by one nation, but under the control of a treaty, with a multitude of acceding nations. This reference brings together large quantities of information on the wide variety of factors, issues, and individuals influencing and relating to the Antarctic.

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Antarctic Research Series, Volume 67. A high amplitude magnetic anomaly occurs over the Butcher Ridge igneous complex in the Transantarctic Mountains. This sill-like body is approximately 10 km long where exposed. It ranges from basalt to rhyolite in composition and has been suggested as evidence of a large mafic intrusion at depth. A single NW-SE aeromagnetic profile flown across Butcher Ridge gave an 8-km-wide positive anomaly with maxima of about 700 and 1000 nT which are associated with topographic peaks that the aircraft cleared at about 300 and 600 m respectively. The observed amplitude of the Butcher Ridge anomaly is too great to be caused by a typical sill of Ferrar Dolerite, examples of which are widely exposed along the Transantarctic Mountains. Models that fit the observed data indicate magnetizations comparable to the Jurassic Dufek layered mafic intrusion in the Transantarctic Mountains near the Weddell Sea. Model calculations show that the upper, and most magnetic part of the inferred intrusion must be greater than about 2 km thick and that the entire intrusion is probably substantially thicker. We interpret the source of the Butcher Ridge magnetic anomaly to be a layered mafic intrusion, syntectonic with the Jurassic Transantarctic (failed) rift, marked by the Ferrar Dolerite. The magnetic evidence for a buried mafic body beneath the Butcher Ridge igneous complex is the first evidence of possible Jurassic cumulate rocks in the Transantarctic Mountains bordering the Ross Embayment-Byrd Subglacial Basin.

Antarctic and Southern Ocean scientific research has produced a wide array of important and exciting scientific advances. Spanning oceanography to tectonics, microbiology to astrophysics, the extreme Antarctic environment provides unique opportunities to expand our knowledge about how our planet works and even the very origins of the universe. Research on the Southern Ocean and the Antarctic ice sheets is becoming increasingly urgent not only for understanding the future of the region but also its interconnections with and impacts on many other parts of the globe. The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) provides U.S. researchers with broad access to the continent and its surrounding ocean. A Strategic Vision for NSF Investments in Antarctic and Southern Ocean Research identifies priorities and strategic steps forward for Antarctic research and observations for the next decade. This survey presents a decadal vision for strategic investments in compelling research and the infrastructure most critical for supporting this research. This report makes recommendations for high-priority, larger-scale, community-driven research initiatives that address questions poised for significant advance with the next decades. This report also outlines a roadmap through which the vision and these priorities can be met.

Since its discovery Antarctica has held a deep fascination for biologists. Extreme environmental conditions, seasonality and isolation have lead to some of the most striking examples of natural selection and adaptation on Earth. Paradoxically, some of these adaptations may pose constraints on the ability of the Antarctic biota to respond to climate change. Parts of Antarctica are showing some of the largest changes in temperature and other environmental conditions in the world. In this volume, published in association with the Royal Society, leading polar scientists present a synthesis of the latest research on the biological systems in Antarctica, covering organisms from microbes to vertebrate higher predators. This book comes at a time when new technologies and approaches allow the implications of climate change and other direct human impacts on Antarctica to be viewed at a range of scales; across entire regions, whole ecosystems and down to the level of species and variation within their genomes. Chapters address both Antarctic terrestrial and marine ecosystems, and the scientific and management challenges of the future are explored.
