Ant­ar­c­tic links

Polar links: On this site, links are added regu­lar­ly to offer an updated sel­ec­tion of web­sites of polar inte­rest. I have che­cked every site befo­re I added the respec­ti­ve link and found it inte­res­t­ing and useful, but respon­si­bi­li­ty for the infor­ma­ti­on and con­tent of exter­nal web­sites remains with the respec­ti­ve owner of the­se web­sites.
