This issue reinforces the importance of continual changes in the countrys history and the impact of these changes on global systems. The book also places emphasis on deciphering the climate records in ice cores, geologic cores, rock outcrops and those inferred from climate models.
New technologies for the coming decades of geoscience data collection are also highlighted. is a collection of papers that were presented by keynote speakers at the 10th International Symposium on Antarctic Earth Sciences.
It is of interest to policy makers, researchers and scientific institutions.
