Hulburt, Hugh Odishaw, Waldo E. Smith. From the introduction by Laurence M. Gould, "As plans for our national participation in the coordinated geophysical exploration of Antarctica by eleven nations developed, it became increasingly evident that we should bring together available scientific knowledge of the continent for background purposes in examining the major scientific problems awaiting us. It is expected that this collection of papers will be a useful handbook for members of the IGY Antarctic staff. The papers, therefore, are not limited to our planned geophysical program but include other related areas of broad scientific interest. " SR1422A; 133 pages
