Summary : Antarctic Climate Evolution, Second Edition enhances our understanding of the history of the world’s largest ice sheet, in particular, how it responded to, and influenced, climate change during the Cenozoic. It includes terrestrial and marine geology, sedimentology, glacier geophysics, ship-borne geophysics, numerical ice sheet and climate modeling data. The book’s content largely mirrors the structure of the Antarctic Climate Evolution (ACE) program (www.scar-ace.org) to investigate past changes in Antarctica by linking climate and ice sheet modeling studies with terrestrial and marine, geological and geophysical evidence of past changes. This new edition reflects new advances and is updated with several new chapters, including those covering marine and terrestrial life changes, ice shelves, advances in numerical modeling, and increasing coverage of rates of change. The cross-disciplinary approach of the ACE program has led to substantial improvement in our knowledge base of past Antarctic climate and our understanding of the factors that have guided its evolution. Offers an overview of Antarctic climate change, analyzing historical, present-day and future developments Provides the latest information on subjects ranging from terrestrial and marine geology to sedimentology and glacier geophysics in the context of Antarctic evolution Fully updated to include expanded coverage of rates of change, advances in numerical modeling, marine and terrestrial life changes, ice shelves, and more

Summary : To understand climate change today, we first need to know how Earth’s climate changed over the past 450 million years. Finding answers depends upon contributions from a wide range of sciences, not just the rock record uncovered by geologists. In Earth’s Climate Evolution, Colin Summerhayes analyzes reports and records of past climate change dating back to the late 18th century to uncover key patterns in the climate system. The book will transform debate and set the agenda for the next generation of thought about future climate change. The book takes a unique approach to the subject providing a description of the greenhouse and icehouse worlds of the past 450 million years since land plants emerged, ignoring major earlier glaciations like that of Snowball Earth, which occurred around 600 million years ago in a world free of land plants. It describes the evolution of thinking in palaeoclimatology and introduces the main players in the field and how their ideas were received and, in many cases, subsequently modified. It records the arguments and discussions about the merits of different ideas along the way. It also includes several notes made from the author’s own personal involvement in palaeoclimatological and palaeoceanographic studies, and from his experience of working alongside several of the major players in these fields in recent years. This book will be an invaluable reference for both undergraduate and postgraduate students taking courses in related fields and will also be of interest to historians of science and/or geology, climatology and oceanography. It should also be of interest to the wider scientific and engineering community, high school science students, policy makers, and environmental NGOs. Reviews: "Outstanding in its presentation of the facts and a good read in the way that it intersperses the climate story with the author's own experiences. [This book] puts the climate story into a compelling geological history." -Dr. James Baker "The book is written in very clear and concise prose, [and takes] original, enlightening, and engaging approach to talking about 'ideas' from the perspective of the scientists who promoted them." -Professor Christopher R. Scotese "A thrilling ride through continental drift and its consequences." - Professor Gerald R. North "Written in a style and language which can be easily understood by laymen as well as scientists." - Professor Dr Jörn Thiede "What makes this book particularly distinctive is how well it builds in the narrative of change in ideas over time." - Holocene book reviews, May 2016 "This is a fascinating book and the author’s biographical approach gives it great human appeal." - E Adlard

Summary : Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of theSpecial Publications Series. Tectonic, Climatic, and Cryospheric Evolution of the AntarcticPeninsula presents the analysis of data collected during theSHALDRIL program, which sampled the most complete Cenozoicstratigraphic section in the Antarctic Peninsula. The stratigraphicintervals sampled fill major gaps in the existing stratigraphicrecord in the region, which is believed to have been the last placein Antarctica to become fully glaciated and, as such, the lastrefugium for plants and animals living on the continent. Providingpreviously unpublished results from studies aimed at improving ourunderstanding of the changes in climate, glacial setting, and faunaand flora that took place over the past 30 million years, thevolume highlights include discussions of marine seismic and drillcore records documenting the initial growth and expansion of an icesheet across the northernmost Antarctic Peninsula continental shelfin the northwestern Weddell Sea. The book features: Detailed vegetation and phytoplankton evolution from greenhousethrough icehouse conditions in Antarctica's last refugium Sand grain texture and micromorphology indicating ice sheetcontrol of weathering style Exhumational history around the Drake Passage margins fromthermochronology and sediment provenance Comprehensive review of the opening of the ocean passagewaybetween Antarctica and South America and the associated regionaltectonics. Tectonic, Climatic, and Cryospheric Evolution of theAntarctic Peninsula will be of interest to geologists,climatologists, and glaciologists interested in climate andcryosphere evolution and those factors that regulate it.

Summary : A gripping history of the polar continent, from the great discoveries of the nineteenth century to modern scientific breakthroughs Antarctica, the ice kingdom hosting the South Pole, looms large in the human imagination. The secrets of this vast frozen desert have long tempted explorers, but its brutal climate and glacial shores notoriously resist human intrusion. Land of Wondrous Cold tells a gripping story of the pioneering nineteenth-century voyages, when British, French, and American commanders raced to penetrate Antarctica’s glacial rim for unknown lands beyond. These intrepid Victorian explorers—James Ross, Dumont D’Urville, and Charles Wilkes—laid the foundation for our current understanding of Terra Australis Incognita. Today, the white continent poses new challenges, as scientists race to uncover Earth’s climate history, which is recorded in the south polar ice and ocean floor, and to monitor the increasing instability of the Antarctic ice cap, which threatens to inundate coastal cities worldwide. Interweaving the breakthrough research of the modern Ocean Drilling Program with the dramatic discovery tales of their Victorian forerunners, Gillen D’Arcy Wood describes Antarctica’s role in a planetary drama of plate tectonics, climate change, and species evolution stretching back more than thirty million years. An original, multifaceted portrait of the polar continent emerges, illuminating our profound connection to Antarctica in its past, present, and future incarnations. A deep-time history of monumental scale, Land of Wondrous Cold brings the remotest of worlds within close reach—an Antarctica vital to both planetary history and human fortunes.

Summary : Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Antarctic Research Series, Volume 79. The Antarctic Peninsula region represents our best natural laboratory to investigate how earth's major climate systems interact and how such systems respond to rapid regional warming. The scale of environmental changes now taking place across the region is large and their pace rapid but the subsystems involved are still small enough to observe and accurately document cause and affect mechanisms. For example, clarification of ice shelf stability via the Larsen Ice Shelf is vital to understanding the entire Antarctic Ice Sheet, its climate evolution, and its response to and control of sea level. By encompassing the broadest range of interdisciplinary studies, this volume provides the global change research and educational communities a framework in which to advance our knowledge of the causes behind regional warming, the dramatic glacial and ecological responses, and the potential uniqueness of the event within the region's paleoclimate record. The volume also serves as a vital resource for public policy and governmental funding agencies as well as a means to educate the large number of ecotourists that visit the region each austral summer.
