If you book a cruise to the Antarctic Peninsula today, you will see ice floes loaded with the expected penguins and seals, situated in a landscape that appears to be a pristine blank. The region seems to erase its own edges from the map, sending up a shroud of mist at the boundaries where the sun-warmed South Seas meet the icy waters of the Southern Ocean, which flows continuously around Antarctica and drives the surprising profusion of life on its shores. Changes to this environment are difficult to discern unless you know its history. For both scientists and historians, discovering what the Antarctic was like before humans altered it means piecing together much fragmentary data, stashed in the archives of many countries.
