      Antarctic Climate Evolution is the first book dedicated to furthering knowledge on the evolution of the world’s largest ice sheet over its ~34 million year history. This volume provides the latest information on subjects ranging from terrestrial and marine geology to sedimentology and glacier geophysics.   The final modeling of the margin was achieved in the late Miocene, when the interaction between the Antarctic and North Atlantic water-masses favored climatic and oceanographic changes with a profound effect on morphosedimentary features. In the Quaternary, the different regions of the margin distinctly responded to such Edition: 1st Ed.

The results of early studies of sediment cores acquired from the Antarctic continental margin are summarized in a number of depositional models that attempt to illustrate sedimentary processes on the continental shelf. Most of these are two-dimensional models.
