ANTARCTIC TRAVERSE ADVENTURES 1959-61
The years immediately following the International Geophysical Year (IGY) were exciting ones. The IGY had just scratched the surface of Antarctic science and exploration, and many of those who participated in that historic event returned to continue the work. Dr. Edwin Robinson was one of those young scientists who began their long career in Antarctic science at this time. This video is a documentary of the first extensive aerial and over-snow scientific traverses following the IGY. The footage was shot by Dr. Robinson himself and it offers an intimate glimpse of life on the trail. Videographer Ed Williams, MD collaborated with Dr. Robinson to produce this excellent video.
