Tour Leader: Chris Edwards

Chris Edwards spent three summers and two winters stationed in Stonington and Alexander Islands in Antarctica in the early 1970s. As a geologist for the British Antarctic Survey, he regularly traveled hundreds of miles by dogsled, camping for six months at a time away from base, to conduct his field research. His doctoral studies based on this research resulted in a Ph.D. in 1981 from the University of Birmingham. This experience and his knowledge of the geology, botany, wildlife and exploration history of Antarctica, the Arctic, and the British Isles make him a sought-after lecturer, field guide and expedition leader. Chris lives in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
