Resource exploitation will accelerate unnatural melting that cannot be offset.

Inextricably linked to this cooperation is the question of the rational management of Antarctic resources, both the living species and the minerals. The major themes covered by the papers include: the state of Antarctic knowledge at this point in the 80s, the policy for the conservation of living species, the exploitation of minerals, legal issues and the prospects for future.

The book integrates an examination of this governmental union with an extensive discussion of earth system science and Antarctica's role in the preservation of global resources. The marriage of policy and science in Antarctica is emphasized as a prime example of the interational collaboration necessary to sustain life on earth."Cited by: Antarctica /21 and beyond—Book with Confidence.
