  • Workshop reports – to be included at a later date

  • Table of cover images and references to prior ISAES Proceedings Volumes – to be added shortly
    The ISAES symposia are the principal Antarctic geoscience symposia, and are held every four years in a different country dating back to the first ISAES held in Cape Town, South Africa in 1963.  This table gives a complete list of the Proceedings volumes for ISAES I to IX, with scanned images of the book covers.
