Историческая справка:
Определение Показатель во всех странах
Speculation over the existence of a "southern land" was not confirmed until the early 1820s when British и American commercial operators и British и Russian national expeditions began exploring the Antarctic Peninsula region и other areas юг of the Antarctic Circle. Not until 1840 was it established that Антарктика was indeed a continent и not just a group of islands. Several exploration "firsts" were achieved in the early 20th century. Following Мир War II, there was an upsurge in scientific research on the continent. A number of countries have set up a range of year-round и seasonal stations, camps, и refuges to support scientific research in Антарктика. Seven have made territorial claims, but not all countries recognize these claims. In order to form a legal framework for the activities of nations on the continent, an Antarctic Treaty was negotiated that neither denies nor gives recognition to existing territorial claims; signed in 1959, it entered into force in 1961.

Антарктика is administered through meetings of the consultative member nations; decisions from these meetings are carried out by these member nations (with respect to their own nationals и operations) in accordance with their own national laws; US law, including certain criminal offenses by или against US nationals, such as murder, may apply extraterritorially; some US laws directly apply to Антарктика; for example, the Antarctic Conservation Act, 16 U.S.C. section 2401 et seq., provides civil и criminal penalties for the following activities, unless authorized by regulation of statute: the taking of native mammals или birds; the introduction of nonindigenous plants и animals; entry into specially protected areas; the discharge или disposal of pollutants; и the importation into the US of certain items from Антарктика; violation of the Antarctic Conservation Act carries penalties of up to $10,000 in fines и один year in prison; the National Science Foundation и Department of Justice share enforcement responsibilities; Public Law 95-541, the US Antarctic Conservation Act of 1978, as amended in 1996, requires expeditions from the US to Антарктика to notify, in advance, the Office of Oceans, Room 5805, Department of State, Washington, DC 20520, which reports such plans to other nations as required by the Antarctic Treaty; for more information, contact Permit Office, Office of Polar Programs, National Science Foundation, Arlington, Virginia 22230; телефон: (703) 292-8030, или visit their website at; more generally, access to the Antarctic Treaty area, that is to all areas between 60 и 90 degrees юг latitude, is subject to a number of relevant legal instruments и authorization procedures adopted by the states party to the Antarctic Treaty

Экономическйи обзор:
Определение Показатель во всех странах
Fishing off the coast и tourism, both based abroad, account for Антарктика's limited economic activity. Antarctic fisheries in 2005-06 (1 July-30 June) reported landing 128,081 metric тонны (estimated рыболовство from the area covered by the Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR), which extends slightly beyond the Antarctic Treaty area). Unregulated рыболовство, particularly of Patagonian toothfish (Dissostichus eleginoides), is a serious problem. The CCAMLR determines the recommended catch limits for marine species. A total of 36,460 tourists visited the Antarctic Treaty area in the 2006-07 Antarctic summer, up from the 30,877 visitors the previous year (estimates provided to the Antarctic Treaty by the Международные Association Антарктики Tour Operators (IAATO); this does not include passengers on overflights). Nearly all of them were passengers on commercial (nongovernmental) ships и several yachts that make trips during the summer. Most tourist trips last approximately two weeks.
