Abstract:

Variability is one of the characteristic features of polar geoecosystems. On the meso- and macro-time scales, the variability of geoecosystems can be expressed in relation to: irregular interannual changes, multi-year cyclic changes, year-to-year directional changes and anthropogenic changes. Polish multidisciplinary research concerning the physical, chemical and biological processes in the region of Admiralty Bay (King George Island, South Shetland Islands) demonstrates such variability.
