Synopsis

This symposium, held in Argentina in March 2003, commemorates Otto Nordenskjoeld's 1901 expedition, and pays tribute to the Swedish and Argentinian explorers who took on the challenge of early fieldwork in Patagonia and Antarctica. This theme is extended to include recent fieldwork in the natural sciences in the Archipelago of Tierra del Fuego, the Antarctic Peninsula and the sub-Antarctic seas, and celebrates the fruitfulness of continuing Swedish-Argentinian scientific cooperation.





The symposium and associated activities took place in the cities of Buenos Aires, La Plata and Ushuaia (Tierra del Fuego), and this book includes a selection of the most significant contributions presented at the meeting.

Jorge Rabassa was born and educated in La Plata, Argentina where he got his degrees in Geology at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Museum, University of La Plata. He did research on the Glacial Geology on James Ross Island, Antarctic Peninsula, between 1980 and 1982, in some of the same areas visited by the Nordenskjoeld Expedition of 1901-1903. He has visited the Antarctic Peninsula several times on board of Antarctic Cruises as Lecturer. He is currently a Principal Investigator of CONICET at CADIC, Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina and a Professor of Geography at the University of Patagonia in Ushuaia. His main fields of interest are Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego. Maria Laura Borla was born in Buenos Aires where she graduated in Tourism. Since 1986 she has worked as a nature-oriented guide in Tierra del Fuego and has traveled to Antarctica aboard A.R.A. Bahia Paraiso in 1987-1989, visiting some of the over-wintering areas where the Swedish-Argentine expedition took place. She has carried out research on Nature-Oriented Tourism and got a Master's degree in this field and is the author of the book "Exploring Tierra del Fuego" (edited in Ushuaia in 2001, 2nd edition 2005), among other publications. She also works as a Spanish-English-French interpreter in Ushuaia.
