science studies

, was a collaboration effort between forty nations to carry out earth science studies from the North Pole to the South Pole and at points in between. The United States, along with Great Britain, France, Japan, Norway, Chile, Argentina, and the U.S.S.R. agreed to go to the South Pole—the least explored area on Earth. Their goal was to advance world knowledge of Antarctic hydrography and weather systems (weather), glacial movements (glacial motion), and marine life. The U.S. Navy was charged with supporting the U.S. scientists for their portion of the IGY studies. In 1949, he accepted to go to Latin America for Fiat, to restart their operations, as Fiat operations in Latin America had been halted during the war. He settled in Argentina, where he lived for nearly a decade with his family. He quickly realised that it would make sense to start manufacturing locally and set up the Argentine subsidiary, Fiat-Concord, which built cars and tractors. Fiat-Concord rapidly became one of the most successful automotive firms in Latin America. SS ''Nevasa'' (SS Nevasa) of 1956 was the final passenger vessel built for BI. Serving as a troopship until redundant in 1962, ''Nevasa'' was assigned new duties with the BI educational cruise ship flotilla until 1974, when she became surplus and was scrapped in 1975. Having earlier been joined in this trade by the more economic ''Uganda'' (SS Uganda), this highly popular vessel was taken up (STUFT) by the British Ministry of Defence (Ministry of Defence (United Kingdom)) in 1982 as a hospital ship during the Falklands war with Argentina. Returning to BI's tradition of government service again in 1983 - this time as a troopship - ''Uganda'' (SS Uganda) was "the last BI" when finally withdrawn in 1985.

The mountain was named ''Tronador'' (Spanish (Spanish language) for ''Thunderer'') by locals in reference to the sound of falling seracs. With an altitude of 3,491 m, Tronador stands more than 1000 m above nearby mountains in the Andean massif, making it a popular mountaineering destination. Located inside two National Parks, Nahuel Huapi (Nahuel Huapi National Park) in Argentina and Vicente Pérez Rosales (Vicente Pérez Rosales National Park) in Chile, Tronador hosts a total of eight glaciers, which are currently retreating due to warming of the upper troposphere.

Argentina

'''Argentina''' ) is a federal republic located in southeastern South America. Sharing the Southern Cone with its smaller neighbour Chile, it is bordered by Bolivia and Paraguay to the north; Brazil to the northeast; Uruguay and the South Atlantic Ocean to the east; Chile to the west and the Drake Passage to the south.

With a mainland area of Argentina is the eighth-largest country (List of countries and outlying territories by total area) in the world, the second largest in Latin America, and the largest Spanish-speaking (Hispanophone) one. Argentina claims sovereignty over part of Antarctica (Argentine Antarctica), the Falkland Islands (Falkland Islands sovereignty dispute) ( ), South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands (South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands sovereignty dispute).

A historical and current middle power regional power, Argentina is one of the G-15 (Group of 15) and G-20 major economies and Latin America's third-largest. It is also a founding member of the United Nations, WBG (World Bank Group), WTO (World Trade Organization), Mercosur, UNASUR (Union of South American Nations), CELAC (Community of Latin American and Caribbean States) and OEI (Organization of Ibero-American States). Because of its stability, market size and increasing share of the high-tech sector, Argentina is classed by investors as a middle emerging economy (emerging economy) with a "very high" (List of countries by Human Development Index#Americas) rating on the Human Development Index.

The earliest recorded human presence in the area now known as Argentina is dated from the Paleolithic period. a Spanish overseas colony founded in 1776. The declaration (Argentine Declaration of Independence) and fight for independence (Argentine War of Independence) (1810–1818) was followed by an extended civil war (Argentine Civil Wars) that lasted until 1861, which ended with the country's reorganization as a federation of provinces (Provinces of Argentina) with Buenos Aires as its capital city. From then on—while massive European immigration waves (Immigration in Argentina) radically reshaped its cultural and demographic outlook—Argentina enjoyed an historically almost-unparalleled increase in prosperity: by the early 20th century it already ranked as the seventh wealthiest in the world. After 1930, however, and despite remaining among the fifteen richest countries until mid-century,
