Information - CL31 Antarctic cryosphere and Southern Ocean climate evolution (Cenozoic-Holocene)
The Antarctic region has profoundly affected the global climates of the past 50 million years, influencing sea level, atmospheric composition and dynamics, and ocean circulation. A greater understanding of this region and the Antarctic cryosphere is crucial to a broader understanding of the global climates and paleoceanography at all scales. The session should assemble interdisciplinary expertise including oceanographers, geochemists, sea-ice experts, paleoceanographers, glaciologists and modelers to present and discuss the progress on the knowledge of southern-high latitude climate evolution at tectonic to decadal time scales and their significance in driving and amplifying global climate development as well as sea level history.
