Abstract: Diving in Antarctica presents the diver with problems related to the extreme environment, logistical and medical support, physiological stress, physical discomfort and danger. This paper describes the peculiar technical difficulties encountered by diving in such an environment and the ways in which equipment and diving procedures need to be modified in order to ensure the success of the program and minimize risk.
