Summary Innocents on the Ice is based on the author's experience and writings as part of a U.S. Navy-supported scientific expedition to establish Ellsworth Station on the Filchner Ice Shelf. This expedition, undertaken from November 1956 to early 1958, coincided with the International Geophysical Year (1957-1958) which ushered in the "scientific age" in Antarctica.
Drawing on his 40 years of Antarctic research experience, Behrendt explains the changes in scientific activities and environmental awareness in Antarctica today.
