References. Antarctic Science provides a truly international forum for the broad spread of studies that increasingly characterise scientific research in the Antarctic. Whilst emphasising interdisciplinary work, the journal publishes papers from environmental management to biodiversity, from volcanoes to icebergs, and from oceanography to the upper atmosphere.

      The Antarctic Convergence, which encircles Antarctica roughly 1, miles (1, kilometers) off the coast, divides the cold southern water mass from warmer waters to the north. The Antarctic Circumpolar Current, the world’s largest ocean current, moves eastward around the continent at an average speed of about half a knot (1 kilometer per hour). The Antarctica Book: Living in the Freezer and The Penguin Book, both by Dr Mark Norman detail the extraordinary existence of creatures in this cold and inhospitable place. There are also various new titles on global warming and Antarctica such as Antarctica: The Global Warning by Sebastian Copeland which is rich in photographs.
