      Antarctic pollution is the result of human occupation on earth. The pollution currently degrading the Antarctic environment affects not just the continent, but the world as a whole. If Antarctic ice sheets were to melt, the United States and the rest of the world would be inundated with water. Antarctic Treaty (Environment Protection) Act Act No. of as amended.

      And the NSF has faced up to some of its past mistakes. ``There was an insult to the environment,'' says Dennis Peacock, head of the NSF's polar science section. ``But that was 20 years ago. The data chart provides relevant sections of the Australian Antarctic Division website and key questions to answer. Encourage students to summarise main points rather than copy large slabs of text. Ask students to create a mind map of the adaptations plants and animals have that help them survive the harsh Antarctic environment.

Preamble. WHEREAS Canada is a party to the Antarctic Treaty, to the Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Seals and to the Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources. The purpose of the Antarctic Environmental Protection Act (AEPA) is to protect the Antarctic environment by implementing the Protocol on Environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty.

The AEPA provides the legislative basis that Canada requires to oversee Canadian activities in the Antarctic and otherwise fulfill the Madrid Protocol's obligations. The Minister of the Environment is. The success of the IGY made apparent the need for a more permanent system of international governance to address the potential sources of conflict on the continent (primarily the disputed territorial claims and the possible use of Antarctica for military purposes) and so provide a stable and reasonable environment for the continuation of cooperative scientific activities.

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.

Antarctic endures for decades, a discarded battery or fuel drum re mains much longer. The impacts of human activity are exacerbated by the Antarctic environment's low assimilative capacity.

For example, the shortness in foodchains due to the limited number of Antarctic species of flora and fauna means that harm to any member—whether through chemi.

1/ Sunlight strikes the earth straight on (at a right angle) at the equator and then the angle gets more acute (less than a right angle - below 90°) as you move away from the equator towards the poles.

This means that at the poles the available sunlight and heat is spread over a greater area. The tilt of the earth as the seasons go by make this effect even greater in the winter.
