The Antarctic continent and the surrounding Southern Ocean have become of tremendous importance to understanding the environment and workings of our planet. This Symposium, through its programme of invited speakers, and you the participants, will combine historical perspective with presentation of modern day accomplishments both to celebrate Discovery’s Centennial and to look to the future.
