A workshop entitled "Managing the Antarctic Environment From Observations to Policy" was convened at the Byrd Polar Research Center of The Ohio State University on July 10-12, 1995. The primary objectives of the workshop were to review the status of environmental policies currently applied to Antarctica, to identify key physical, chemical and biological variables that can serve as indicators of human impacts and to identify requirements that spaceborne sensors must meet to be usefully applied as Antarctic environmental monitoring tools. An additional objective was to explore how remote sensing data must be manipulated in order to be useful to policy makers. Over 50 participants with expertise in Antarctic policy, science, and commercial enterprises attended the meeting, This report summarizes the findings of eight panels which addressed policy issues, the marine and terrestrial environments, science support, tourism,human impact, and remote sensing.
