Indicator: AATH-07 Condition of scientific research stations - survey of Davis Station
For details of the survey refer to:
Davis station was established on the continent in 1957. The condition of buildings and structures varies from no longer exists/demolished to poor condition, sound condition and very good condition.
Extreme weather places great pressure on structures and continual maintenance is required for their preservation. By the 1990s, there was a minimal maintenance program for old structures that were still functioning and none for buildings that were no longer in use.
More heritage/archaeological surveys are required for a more complete understanding.
