Hydroponic Food Production at Scott Base
Degree GrantorUniversity of Canterbury
Degree LevelPostgraduate Certificate
Degree NamePostgraduate Certificate in Antarctic Studies
Originally, this study was intended to review material that Antarctica New Zealand held concerning its abandoned hydroponics system. After the review, suggestions were to be made on implementations that could overcome the problems experienced in the previous system. However, with evident lethargy and lack of interest Antarctica New Zealand failed to provide any substantive information regarding the previous operation, despite their agreement to do so. For this reason, the following report is largely a review of hydroponic gardening. There is some attempt to relate this to the Antarctic and similar application.
