Imagine you are a scientist on Antarctica and have been asked to develop an action plan to deal with waste at the research station.

Brainstorm in groups ways you could reduce and deal with the amount of waste produced (e.g. food, packaging, research materials, human waste, health and scientific equipment, cleaning materials).

Thanks, Bethan. Great site. Your article’s helped me to a much clearer understanding of the potential instability of the WAIS. (I’d been alarmed by a fictional account of an almost overnight collapse, with, as I understood it, the whole thing sliding off into the sea with a splash, resulting in an extraordinarily rapid 5 metre rise in sea level.

Built in on Anvers Island, Palmer Station is the only American antarctic base located north of the Antarctic Circle. The base’s activities focus on the study of marine life and most projects are seasonal in nature: the station’s resident population averages around 40 in summer but drops to in winter.
