About this book

Reflects the analysis of the large amount of marine seismic reflection data and recently collected sediment cores from the Antarctic continental margin. The second Antarctic Research Series volume devoted to this research, this volume complements the work presented in volume 68. It will help educate students and scientists to better understand the fluctuations of the Cenozoic Antarctic Ice Sheet and their signature in the geologic record from the circum-Antarctic continental margin.
