About this book

Covers methods of reconstruction of past climate, climate changes, oceanography of the South Atlantic (including the Southern Ocean) and the cycling of biochemical components in the ocean. Each chapter gives an overview of a specific proxy, parameters with approximate unobservable environmental variables, provides particular findings obtained in the South Atlantic and ends with an outlook on future perspectives with respect to the proxy described.
