  • Abstract:
    This volume provides a comprehensive, up-to-date account of how the physical and biological

    environment of the Antarctic continent and Southern Ocean has changed from Deep Time until

    the present day. It also considers how the Antarctic environment may change over the next

    century in a world where greenhouse gas concentrations are much higher than occurred over the

    last few centuries. The Antarctic is a highly coupled system with non-linear interactions between

    the atmosphere, ocean, ice and biota, along with complex links to the rest of the Earth system. In

    preparing this volume our approach has been highly cross-disciplinary, with the goal of reflecting

    the importance of the continent in global issues, such as sea level rise, the separation of natural

    climate variability from anthropogenic influences, food stocks, biodiversity and carbon uptake by

    the ocean. One hundred experts in Antarctic science have contributed and drafts of the manuscript

    were reviewed by over 200 scientists. We hope that it will be of value to all scientists with an

    interest in the Antarctic continent and the Southern Ocean, policy makers and those concerned

    with the deployment of observing systems and the development of climate models.
