3 一個長年冰封雪埋、人跡罕至的南極洲 廿世紀以前惹人關愛的眼神可謂寥寥可數 在絕大多數世人的印象中 它是毫無生氣、 可有可無的化外世界 然而就在廿一世紀方一起步 透過科學家、自然學界的研究觀察與披露 我們已才警覺到地球的暖化和它密不可分 地球能否保持現狀地形地貌 它具有舉足輕重的地位 未來人類的安危禍福乃至所有生物的存續絕滅都與它息息相關 但我們對它的瞭解卻是非常的有限 它的背後藏著多少不為人知的世界 透過探險家的鏡頭 請稍窺它的神秘面紗

4 The Antarctic continent is located in the South Pole of our Planet. Its geography, climate and biological conditions provide a unique enviroment.

14 About 99% of Antarctica is covered with ice at an average thicknes of 2,500 meters, reaching in some places as deep as 4,776 meters. If the ice layer would melt all the Earth’s Oceans would rise 70 meters above the actual level.

19 The Antarctic Continent functions as one of Earth’s “refrigerators” regulating the oceanic currents and the world’s climate. Any significant enviromental impact would alter the global patterns of weather with disastrous consecuences.

29 The arrival of the first tourists in the 50’s was a main cause of enviromental concern. Strict rules and regulations were created as to protect the ecology of the enviroment from the visitors such as creating restricted zones, mantain a safe distance from the wild life, do not feed nor touch the animals, and rigid control of waste disposal.
