    The Antarctic continental shelf ( million km 2) accounts for 11 percent of the world's continental-shelf areas (Zwally et al. , Gutt et al and extends deep at . The New Zealand Sub-Antarctic Islands consist of five remote and windswept island groups in the Southern Ocean south and south-east of New Zealand. The islands, lying between the Antarctic and Subtropical Convergences, are oases of high productivity, biodiversity, dense populations and endemism for birds, ocean life, plants and invertebrates.

    New Zealander Clarence Hare was a steward in the first real land expedition in the Antarctic. The British National Antarctic Expedition (), or Discovery expedition, was led by British explorer Robert Falcon Scott.

Antarctica New Zealand is the government agency responsible for carrying out New Zealand's activities in Antarctica, supporting world leading science and environmental protection.

Our vision is: Antarctica and the Southern Ocean - valued, protected, understood. Five construction companies, shortlisted to build the new Scott Base, are heading to.

First publication of New Zealand Antarctic Society quarterly journal, Antarctic; s In August, The New Zealand Government decide to establish an Antarctic base as part of its contribution to International Geophysical Year (–58). For a New Zealand and Antarctic marine geophysical data base book country, the science effort that New Zealand produces is impressive.

Our initiative, ingenuity and boldness sees New Zealand leading the way in Antarctic research at a global level. We facilitate the research of New Zealand scientists and. Scott Base was originally constructed in support of the UK inspired and privately managed Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic Expedition (TAE).

The New Zealand government provided support for the TAE and also for the International Geophysical Year (IGY) project offive of whose members were attached to the Expedition.

Marine Geological and Geophysical Atlas of the Circum‐Antarctic to 30°S. Scott Base and Hallett Station would form part of a circum-Antarctic set of observatories (an IGY priority).

Data were routinely submitted to International Data Centres, enabling research on global problems. This led to improved large scale weather forecasting, along with better understanding of the ionosphere and its effect on radio propagation. This expedition had the aim of constructing a base for the Soviet International Geophysical Year (IGY) commitment.

The book will be launched by the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research at its Open Science Conference in Auckland, New Zealand. Across 66 chapters, the atlas contains around colour photos. New Zealand’s Commitment to Antarctica and the Southern Ocean Antarctica has intrinsic value as a natural reserve, devoted to peace and science¹.

New Zealand, guided by manaakitanga 2, is committed to preserving and protecting Antarctica and the Southern Ocean³ for present and future generations. Scientists have found a new point of major vulnerability in the Antarctic ice sheet, in a region that already appears to be changing as the climate warms and has the potential to raise sea levels.

Although New Zealand’s slice of the great white south is three times the size of the rest of the country, for most of us the Ross Dependency is an unknown—a blank space in the atlas of our images and experiences.

The Australian Antarctic Territory (AAT) comprises million km 2, or approximately 42 per cent of the Antarctic continent, with a marine jurisdiction extending over an area of approximately million km 2 (an additional approximate km 2 of extended continental shelf that remains to be resolved is not included).

These regions, when taken together, represent 30 per cent of all. Antarctica New Zealand Antarctica New Zealand is the statutory body responsible for New Zealand's interests in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean.
