Abstract Presents overviews of geophysical, chemical and biological properties of selected Antarctic subglacial environments, with particular reference to Lake Vostok. Examines distribution, origin and hydrology of Antarctic subglacial lakes; Antarctic ice streams as regions of dynamic liquid-water movement that influence ice sheet dynamics; and subglacial environments as habitats for life and reservoirs of organic carbon
