About this book

The Antarctic Peninsula 'the most rapidly warming place on Earth' is undergoing dramatic environmental changes, including ice shelf break-up events. What forcing factors made this possible? "Antarctic Peninsula Climate Variability: Historical and Paleoenvironmental Perspectives" responds to this question, and more. Geologists, oceanographers, glaciologists, meteorologists, ecologists, and natural historians will find this work an important integrative resource in their effort to understand how regional climates change.
