About this Book
Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Special Publications Series.
- Detailed vegetation and phytoplankton evolution from greenhouse through icehouse conditions in Antarctica's last refugium
- Sand grain texture and micromorphology indicating ice sheet control of weathering style
- Exhumational history around the Drake Passage margins from thermochronology and sediment provenance
- Comprehensive review of the opening of the ocean passageway between Antarctica and South America and the associated regional tectonics.
Tectonic, Climatic, and Cryospheric Evolution of the Antarctic Peninsula will be of interest to geologists, climatologists, and glaciologists interested in climate and cryosphere evolution and those factors that regulate it.
