The results of a preliminary interpretation of the measurements at the Antarctic coast by a geopolariton sounding technique are presented. The technique allows to obtain an information about the strained and deformed state of the rocks. The measurements are carried out in 2005-2006 on a glacier at Galindez Island and at the ships of the X-XI Ukrainian Antarctic Expedition along the continent coast from the Akademik Vernadsky Station up to South Shetland Islands and through the Dreyk Strait.
