To understand climate change today, we first need to know how Earth’s climate changed over the past 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 .
Figure The primary sites of deep water formation; Antarctic Bottom Water is formed int he Weddell Sea, and North Atlantic Deep water is formed in the Greenland Sea (PW). This cold, dense water sinks, and once it is removed from the surface, its temperature and salinity remain unchanged, so it keeps the same characteristics as it moves.

Book Description The fragile Antarctic environment consists of a closely linked system of the lithosphere, atmosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere. Changes in this system have influenced global climate, oceanography and sea level for most of Cenozoic by: Buy Oceanology of the Antarctic Continental Shelf (Antarctic Research Series) on FREE SHIPPING on qualified orders Oceanology of the Antarctic Continental Shelf (Antarctic Research Series): Jacobs, Stanley S.: : Books.

Abstract. This study focuses on 12 years of physical oceanography data, collected during the Palmer, Antarctica, Long-Term Ecological Research program (PAL LTER) over the continental margin of the western Antarctic Peninsula (WAP).
The dataset offers the most long-lived consistent CTD-gridded observations of Antarctic waters collected anywhere in the Southern Ocean. Early Antarctic Exploration & History Before the age of modern science and discovery, the continent of Antarctica was merely a concept postulated by ancient philosophers.
In the 4th century BC, the Greek philosopher Aristotle reasoned that the large, northern, frigid landmass (the Arctic) would be balanced by a southern, frozen landmass.

The Antarctic is unique, geographically, politically, and scientifically. It is the most remote, hostile, and dangerous continent, while at the same time it is the most pristine and least developed. Antarctica is the only major part of the Earth's landmass not directly governed by one nation, but under the control of a Treaty, with a multitude of acceding nations.
