Abstract

MAYEWSKI, Paul Andrew. Ice core reconstruction of Antarctic climate change and implications. Anales Instituto Patagonia (Chile) [online]. 2012, vol.40, n.1, pp. 97-104. ISSN 0718-686X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-686X2012000100013.

Antarctica is the Earth’s largest environmental library for ice cores. Examples of the scientific fin-dings of the 21-nation consortium called the International Trans Antarctic Scientific Expedition (ITASE) under the auspices of the Scientific Committee for Antarctic Research (SCAR) are presented with special emphasis on the value of these records in reconstructing atmospheric circulation over Antarctica and the Southern Ocean.

Keywords : Antarctica; Southern Ocean; ice cores; climate change; ITASE; SCAR.
