Resolution No.6 (1985): Importance of Antarctic observation

IAGA, noting the importance of Antarctica as a unique area in which to observe a great variety of geophysical phenomena, which are essential for the understanding of the physics of atmospheric and near-Earth space processes, and recognising its particular suitability for international scientific cooperation, recommends that funding agencies continue to support existing experiments in Antarctica and implement new installations of equipment for studying the ionosphere, thermosphere, mesosphere, stratosphere and solid Earth in these regions by means of ground-based instruments, rockets and low altitude orbiting spacecraft.
