Narrative

Dr. Jan Cisak was a member of the 1978/79 Polish summer expedition to Bunger Hills and was the astronomer and geodesist with Professor Krzeminski as the station leader. Jan's work with the Polish institute of Geodesy and Cartography resulted in a large scale photomap of the station region together with geodetic and geodynamic measurements in the Bunger Hills. Dr. Cisak wrote many geodetic research papers including two co-authored by him for the IPY publication “Geodetic and Geo-physical Observations in Antarctica – An Overview in the IPY Perspective". He was also the Polish national representative at SCAR WG-GGI meetings in 1994, 1996, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006
