Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Antarctic Research Series, Volume 56.
The Antarctic continent and the surrounding Southern Ocean represent one of the major climate engines of the Earth: coupled components critical in the Earth's environmental system. The contributions in this volume help with the understanding of the long-term evolution of Antarctica's environment and biota. The aim of this and the succeeding companion volume is to help place the modern system within a historical context.
