About this book

Reports new science results based primarily on current seismic reflection data and sediment cores recently collected from the continental margin of Antarctica. This volume 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. The volume contains three parts:

- A collection of 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.
- Two CD-ROMs that contain the digital data from which the atlas text, maps, and seismic reflection profiles were made plus digital navigation data.
