The Antarctic Research Series, an outgrowth of research done in the Antarctic during the International Geophysical Year, was begun in 1963 with a grant from the National Science Foundation to the American Geophysical Union. It is a book series designed to serve scientists, including graduate students, actively engaged in Antarctic or closely related research, and others versed in the biological or physical sciences. It provides a continuing, authoritative medium for the presentation of extensive and detailed scientific research results from Antarctica, particularly the results of the United States Antarctic Research Program.
