Abstract Examines designation of Antarctic scientific stations as historic sites and monuments (HSMs) under Antarctic Treaty System (ATS) from evolving and sometimes contrasting perspectives of protecting environmental and cultural values. Compares and contrasts findings of Greenpeace International's unofficial inspections with ATS documentation and official inspection reports, and discusses transient-rubbish- durable theory of rubbish, and interplay of cultural and environmental values since 1983 and their reflection in designation and management of historic sites in Antarctica.
