"The papers in this volume are primarily the results of research by the United States Antarctic Research Program (USARP). It is an outgrowth from, but not a complete record of, the Antarctic Research Symposium held in Dallas, Texas, December, 1968, at the 135th annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)."

Includes bibliographical references.
