Abstract: New soil studies in the cold suggest that in the terrestrial ecosystems of the coastal regions of the antarctic continent soil formation and chemical weathering occur to a greater extent than previously expected. This study summarises and discusses the paedogenic results of two (including some aspects of an earlier expedition) Australian funded expeditions (austral summer 1995/1996 and 1998/1999) ...
