Sixty articles prepared in 8 thematic sections seek advice from most modern geological and geophysical result of Antarctic examine. The Precambrian of the East Antarctic defend and its geological background is taken into account in addition to sub-ice topography, geophysics and stratigraphy, sedimentology and geophysics of the encircling Southern Ocean. specific emphasis is given to the relationship of the Antarctic and the encircling continents whilst forming a part of Gondwana.

International co-operation for meteorological and magnetic observations was arranged to take place from 1 October 1901 until 31 March 1903; this included all merchant and navy ships sailing on a route south of 30° S (Lüdecke 2003a). Besides, the British expedition under the leadership of Robert Falcon Scott (1868–1912), the Swedish expedition under Otto Nordenskjöld (1869–1928) and the Scot expedition under William Speirs Bruce (1867–1921) participated in the collaboration. The agreement was extended until 31 March 1904, when Scott and Bruce wintered a second time and the French expedition (1903–1905) under Jean Charcot (1867–1936) joined.

Ayers et al. (1992) reported a new technique using a lid on the sample container without welding to seal a capsule for hydrothermal experiments. In cases where we adopted the conventional crimping method, the experiments failed due to addition of the H2O component from surroundings.

They prove that Pan-African (~500 Ma) granulite facies metamorphism overprinted Grenvillian metamorphism (≤1 000 Ma). (These results should continue to Sri Lanka and India). Kawasaki and Motoyoshi support by experiments that retrograde Pan-African metamorphism in the Lützow-Holm Complex took place within the granulite facies. Presumed Grenville-aged sapphirine granulite is reported from a new locality in the Schirmacheroase by Baba et al. This product of ultrahigh-temperature metamorphism is thought to be suitable to detect the evolution of Rodinia and Gondwana.
