Abstract: Antarctica is an excellent and ideal place that renders opportunities to sort out several scientific problems such as in the field of geology, meteorology, environmental sciences, biology and medical sciences. Even in the fields of engineering and communication it comes forward to deal with the problems. Indian scientists have taken important steps in the fields of ice layer of Antarctica/marine ice interaction and marine base; stratospheric ozone and tropospheric chemicals; long term environment monitoring and global climate, ancient environmental records; giant ice; geoscientific map and scientific study of ice; distant earthquake and water studies; studies in bryobotany and polar horticulture; longterm monitoring of Antarctic mammals and birds; physiological and biochemical development of nutritive requirements of man; communication, wind energy, fire retardant engineering etc. Antarctica expedition organized by National Centre for Antarctic and Ocean Research (NCAOR), Goa is joinend by many distinguished scientists/ organizations. India has established a research station called 'Maitry' which is considered to be the best research station in the world today. Antaricta is the continent of future. It is an open air Laboratory in itself.
