Exhibition Label:
"Climate Change at the Poles," Jan-2009, Kate Meyer, Jennifer Talbot, and Angela Watts
In contrast to the limited number of pilots who would benefit from the 1928 air navigation chart on view in this gallery, this 1975 map reveals a plethora of air traffic routes from Christchurch, New Zealand to US research stations at McMurdo, Byrd Surface Camp (summer fuel stop and weather station), Siple (once a site for research in upper atmosphere physics), Dome C (once a site for glaciology research) at the South Pole, and the Russian station at Vostok.
