Abstract:

Men who had spent twelve months at one of three Antarctic research stations N ranging from 17 to 33 provided information at two time periods concerning work, formal communication, and off-duty friendship interactions. The purpose of the study was to ascertain the extent to which group structure changed in any of these three domains of interaction over a six-month period. From an analysis of direct, indirect, and reciprocal choices there were no general change patterns common to all station groups or all types of interaction.
