Alessandro Antonello (Flinders University) and Adrian Howkins (University of Bristol), historians and members of the SCAR Action Group “Meeting and Managing Antarctic Environments”, have a new article out in the Journal of Historical Geography.

It is the first historical analysis of the use of environmental impact statements in Antarctica by the United States in the 1970s—the first such use of impact assessment in Antarctica, preceding the comprehensive environmental protections of the Madrid Protocol after 1991.
