Overview

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Antarctic Research Series, Volume 71.

The Antarctic Ice Sheet has greatly affected global climate, sea level, ocean circulation, and southern hemisphere biota during Cenozoic times. Much of our understanding of the evolution of the ice sheet has been inferred from isotopic studies on distant deep-ocean sediments, because few Cenozoic rocks are exposed on the Antarctic continent. Yet, large differences occur between past ice volumes inferred from isotopic studies and those inferred from low-latitude sea-level variation. The massive quantities of glacially transported terrigenous sediments that lie beneath the Antarctic continental margin provide an additional, more direct record of the inferred ice sheet fluctuations. Volume 68 addresses the history of ice sheet fluctuations as recorded by geological and geophysical investigations of selected areas of the Antarctic continental margin. As described below, the volume gives data and results from on-going research by a major multinational project directed toward better understanding the impact of Antarctic Ice Sheet fluctuations on global sea levels and climates.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This package contains three parts: a bound volume comprising traditional science papers based on material presented at the International ANTOSTRAT Symposium in 1994; a seismic stratigraphic atlas that includes a text description and paper images of more than 45 maps, seismic reflection profiles, and drill-site correlations for the Ross Sea; and two CD-ROMs that contain the digital data from which the atlas text, maps, and seismic reflection profiles were made plus digital navigation data. Intended for students and scientists seeking better understanding of the fluctuations of the Cenozoic Antarctic Ice Sheet and their signature in the geologic record from the circum- Antarctic continental margin.
