- AATH-09 Surveys of impacts of isolation on heritage sites
This indicator allows an examination of the impact of isolation on the ability to maintain and conserve heritage sites.
- AATH-10 Surveys of impacts of tourism on heritage sites
This indicator examines the level of tourism in Australia's Antarctic Territory and its impact on the condition of heritage sites.
- AATH-11 Survey of impacts of uncontrolled visits on heritage sites
Uncontrolled or illegal visits are a potential problem for the more remote sites at Mawson's Huts and Heard Island.

As per tourism generally, visitors can damage sites by inadvertent trampling of artefacts, especially in extreme weather. Increasing numbers of visitors entering buildings put pressure on the structures and may inadvertently damage portable elements. This indicator examines the level of and impact of uncontrolled visits on heritage sites.
- AATH-12 Survey of impacts of weather on heritage sites
This indicator examines the impact of extreme conditions such as high wind speeds, corrosion, ice accumulation and snow loads on the condition of heritage sites.
- AATH-14 Survey of impacts of hazardous material on heritage sites
This indicator examines the level of and impact of hazardous waste on the condition of Antarctic heritage sites.
