The American physician, Frederick Cook, joined the expedition at the last minute when the first surgeon pulled out. Amundsen wrote reverently of Cook’s contributions during the arduous Antarctic winter, ‘He, of all the ship’s company, was the one man of unfaltering courage, unfailing hope, endless cheerfulness, and unwearied kindness…. And not only was his faith undaunted, but his ingenuity and enterprise were boundless’. For many years Cook’s account was the principal one available in English, as Gerlache’s was only translated in 1998, and Lecointe’s book, was published in 190... View more info

Davis was arguably the greatest of the captains in the age of Antarctic exploration. His seven voyages from 1907 to 1930 gave him unrivalled experience in ice navigation. His caution and natural pessimism often brought him into conflict with expedition leaders such as Douglas Mawson. Taken from his private journals, here for the first time is Davis's account of his major Antarctic voyages. View more info

In 1836, the French King Louis-Philippe, enthusiastic for Southern Hemisphere exploration, supported J. Dumont d Urville s plan for a circumnavigation focusing on the South Seas. D Urville, 1790-1842, had already distinguished himself on two Pacific expeditions and was eager to rival the achievements of James Cook. Between 1837 and 1840, the ships Astrolabe and Zelee explored the waters of the Antarctic area and Oceania in extremely harsh conditions: almost forty crew members died or deserted. However, d Urville discovered a new portion of the Antarctic coast, shed light on the ethnography of ... View more info

Life in Antarctic Deserts and other Cold Dry Environments. Astrobiological Analogs

The McMurdo Dry Valleys form the largest relatively ice free area on the Antarctic continent. The perennially ice covered lakes, ephemeral streams, and extensive areas of exposed soil are subject to low temperatures, limited precipitation, and salt accumulation. The dry valleys thus represent a region where life approaches its environmental limits. This unique ecosystem has been studied for decades as an analog to environments on other planets. For the first time, the detailed terrestrial research of the dry valleys is brought together and presented from an astrobiological perspective. View more info
