During the 2015-2016 season, links to an internet survey were distributed to Antarctic travelers traveling with two different tour companies with expedition ships leaving from Ushuaia, Argentina, A paper brochure was placed in the expedition ship cabins of tourists before their arrival, and expedition staff gave reminders to complete them. 175 travelers, largely from two ships, completed this internet survey through Qualtrics. Tourists received links to the survey from expedition leaders who volunteered to distribute paper explanations of the survey with the link, including one author of the study (Roedel). This document gives the questions from the Qualtrics survey and the compiled results. Individual responses are not provided in order to preserve confidentiality. Some of the survey questions were taken from other, larger surveys in the hopes of producing comparable data. Those surveys, and their corresponding questions, are indicated in the Block Titles. Responses were collected between December 21, 2015 and March 8, 2016, a timeframe that corresponds to the Antarctic tourism season.
