There are approximately 66 scientific bases in Antarctica, of which about 37 are engaged year round, the rest are released during the summer and closed down for winter. There are about 4,000 people through the summer months and about 1,000 over winter each year.

Most residents of scientific stations do sole a summer stage anywhere from 3-6 months, with a smaller number staying over the Antarctic winter. A typical tour is one summer or one winter and the two summers either side, around 15 months entirely. It's frequent for some to stay for two winters and three summers.
