Antarctic Climate Change and the Environment PDF

Antarctic Climate Change and the Environment PDF, this volume provides a comprehensive, up-to-date account of how the physical and biological environment of the Antarctic continent and the 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, policymakers and those concerned with the deployment of observing systems and the development of climate models.

JOHN TURNER is a research scientist at the British Antarctic Survey in Cambridge, the UK where he leads a project investigating recent Antarctic climate change and how it may change over the next century.

He has had a long involvement with SCAR and was the Chief Officer of the Physical Sciences Standing Scientific Group from 2002 to 2006 and chaired the steering committee of the SCAR program on Antarctica and the Global Climate System from 2005 to 2008.

He is the co-author of ‘Antarctic Meteorology and Climatology’ and ‘Polar Lows: Mesoscale Weather Systems in the Polar Regions’, both of which were published by Cambridge University Press. He was awarded the International Journal of Climatology Prize of the Royal Meteorological Society in 2005.
