ASSESSMENT OF VIABLE PORTS FOR ANTARCTICA TRANSPORTATION VIA NAVIGATIONAL PERSPECTIVE

Authors:

Abstract

In recent years, large number of countries have established research stations in Antarctica. Scientific researchs can be made in the research stations but the natural resources of Antarctica shall not be extracted in regard to the 1991 Antarctic Protocol of Environment Protection. In the future, the world will be in danger of exhausting supply of natural sources such as about oil and some minerals. Therefore, the investigation about natural source reserves in Antarctica has gained importance considerably. The transportation to Antarctica is being made via only Chile and New Zeland now. The aims of this study are to open a new window looking to Antarctica from the different view point and evaluate Antarctica as a logistic area. This study views the current Antarctica ports and calculates distances between these ports and some important points in the world using the great circle sailing routes. Finally, it represents viable ports in Antarctica by navigational distance perspective
