Geological Evolution of Antarctica is a collection of papers presented at the Fifth International Symposium on Antarctic Earth Sciences, held under the auspices of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) at Robinson College, Cambridge, 1987. Contributors were invited to address problems related to the tectonic evolution of the Antarctic crust and the paleoenvironmental evolution of Antarctica since the Late Mesozoic. 115 papers dealing with the crustal development of Antarctica are divided into major geographical areas and arranged in chronostratigraphic order. The first four sections in this group cover the craton, the Transantarctic Mountains, Weddell Sea-Ross Sea region and the Pacific margin; the last addresses aspects of Gondwana break-up and discusses some of the environmental changes arising from the break-up.
