This is the first book to provide a comprehensive overview of the environment of the Antarctic continent and its conservational approaches being adopted by all stake holders to help preserve the pristine environment of the icy continent. It discusses various environmental issues, policies, and governance through the Antarctic Treaty and provisions made therein for effective management of Environmental good practices under the ambit of the Antarctic Treaty. The investigations carried out by Indian researchers through initiatives addressing Antarctic Environmental management are well documented. Using data gathered by two Indian research bases Maitri and Bharti, ideal sites to study and understand Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) in the Antarctic in the past and the recent changes, this book helps understand environmental perspectives and evaluate some of the most pressing issues in the south polar region.
