Abstract This book divides Antarctica into eight ice-free regions and provides information on the soils of each region. Soils have been studied in Antarctica for nearly 100 years. Although only 0.35% (45,000 km2) of Antarctica is ice-free, its weathered, unsolidated material qualify as "soils". Soils of Antarctica is richly illustrated with nearly 150 images and provisional maps are provided for several key ice-free areas.
