Summary
This book presents a comprehensive survey of the climatology and meteorology of Antarctica. As well as describing the climate which prevails in the Antarctic, the book also considers the processes by which this climate is maintained and explores links between the Antarctic and the global climate system. This volume will be of greatest interest to meteorologists and climatologists with a specialised interest in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean, but it will also appeal to researchers in Antarctic glaciology, oceanography and biology. Graduates and undergraduates studying physical geography or the earth, atmospheric and environmental sciences will find much useful background material in the book
