Abstract In this chapter we consider the various types of data and models that are available to investigate climatic and environmental change in the Antarctic. We examine the availability and accuracy of in- situ physical and biological data, including the data that can be extracted from ice cores, along with the information that can be obtained from satellite systems that have become increasingly important over the last couple of decades. Mathematical models have been utilized increasingly in Antarctic research. Initially their applications were in the more physical areas of climate, ice sheet, sea ice and ocean modelling. However, they are now starting to be employed in biology--a trend that seems set to continue in the future.
