The evolution of Antarctic climate from a Cretaceous greenhouse into the Neogene icehouse is captured within a rich record of fossil leaves, wood, pollen, and flowers from the Antarctic Peninsula and the Transantarctic Mountains. About 85 million years ago, during the mid-Late Cretaceous, flowering plants thrived in subtropical climates in Antarctica.

The Antarctic Climate Evolution (ACE) Program is one of the Scientific Research Programs (SRPs) of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR), and is a core International Polar Year (IPY) Project. ACE aims to facilitate the study of Antarctic climate and glacial history (i.e., greenhouse Antarctica, the onset of glaciation, and the response of the Antarctic ice sheets to past climate changes across a range of timescales) through integration of numerical modeling with geophysical and geological data.

ICE :: Antarctica
While Antarctica was first circumnavigated in 1773, the climate, for many states, appeared inhospitable. It was not until the end of the 19th century that the land itself began to be explored, and shortly after, in 1908, the first public claim to the territory was established (Great Britain). The rationale was not only scientific research, but also the development of the whaling industry.

The Antarctic climate anomaly and galactic cosmic rays
The phenomenon has been called the polar see-saw[15, 16], but that implies a north-south symmetry that is ab-sent. Greenland is better coupled to global temperatures than Antarctica is, and the fulcrum of the temperature swings is near the Antarctic Circle. A more apt term for the eect is the Antarctic climate anomaly.
Hemisphere (SH) summers are other factors that may have
A global climate model is used to study the effect of attening the orography of the Antarctic Ice Sheet on climate. A general result is that the Antarctic continent and the atmosphere aloft warm, while there is modest cooling globally. The large local warming over Antarctica leads to increased outgoing longwave radiation, which drives anomalous southward energy transport toward the continent and cooling elsewhere.

Abstract The rapidly changing climate in Antarctica is impacting the ecosystems. Since records began, climate changes have varied considerably throughout Antarctica with both positive and negative trends in temperatures and precipitation observed locally. However, over the course of this century a more directional increase in both temperature and precipitation is expected to occur throughout Antarc-tica.

Climate Myths Project - Lilian Burtness
Therefore, Antarctica is gaining sea ice but still losing freshwater land ice, which when melted, changes the composition of the saltwater ocean layers. Between 1992 and 2011, the Antarctic Ice Sheets overall lost 1350 giga-tonnes into the oceans, which is not even as much as Greenland. Discussion: This myth denies the actual existence of climate change and states that global warming is not occuring since Antarctica and Greenland are gaining ice.

Human Biological Adaptability: Adapting to Climate Extremes
Adapting to Climate Extremes. Humans and many other mammals have unusually efficient internal temperature regulating systems that automatically maintain stable core body temperatures in cold winters and warm summers.

Recent variability and trends in antarctic snowfall
Averaged over the continent, the annual snowfall trends in both Polar MM5 datasets are not statistically different from zero, suggesting that recent Antarctic snowfall changes do not mitigate currently observed sea level rise. However, the lack of a continent-averaged annual trend does not suggest that Antarctica is isolated from the recent climate changes occurring elsewhere on Earth. Rather, snowfall variability is expressed by strong seasonal and regional changes.

Will Antarctic ice loss continue at this rate?

Volcanoes and Global Climate Change
Our planet’s climate results from a complex and always changing mixture of processes and events. The basic source of energy is radiation from the Sun. The incoming radiation interacts with the Earth’s atmosphere and surface, so that changes to either can affect the climate. For example, a dark lava flow absorbs more of the solar energy than a desert soil, so a large enough lava flow could warm a local region.

Many factors, including drought, climate change, reduced water allocations, and land-use changes could worsen salinity conditions there, and in other agricultural lands in the state. Mapping soil salinity at regional and state levels is essential for identifying drivers and trends in agricultural soil salinity, and for developing mitigation strategies, but traditional soil sampling for salinity does not allow for accurate large-scale mapping.

Scientists have concluded that humans are producing more greenhouse gases than ever before. These gases trap heat in our atmosphere, causing our planet to warm up and changing our climate. Your carbon footprint, therefore, measures the amount of potential impact your daily life has on the environment. By reducing the amount of greenhouse gases produced by your lifestyle, you can reduce your footprint and help slow climate change on Earth.

In this frozen landscape she looks for, and finds, evidence that an abundant animal community flourished there more than 200 million years ago. The evidence that she studies is the burrows and tracks that these ancient animals left behind in the rock. Miller uses these “trace fossils” to reconstruct the environment, ecosystem and climate that existed in these ancient times.

Australia's Climate
Australia is bisected by the tropic of Capricorn; much of Australia is closer to the equator than any part of the USA. Accordingly, the northern Australia enjoys a tropical climate, and southern Australia a temperate one. The tropical states Queensland and the Northern Territory have highly predictable weather. In ``winter'', typical daily maximums are from 20 to 24 degrees Celsius (68 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit) and rain is rare.

Investigating climate change | SUNY Oswego
Global Laboratory students will trek to Antarctica to work with climate scientists learning techniques to study the impact changing climes have upon glaciers, the melting sentinels on the front line of this environmental crusade. ... This type of hands-on climate monitoring is critically important to explaining how increasing carbon emissions and other pollution affect our planet. Exploration in Antarctica is not bound to the study of a collapsing 45-million-year-old ice pack, however.

Sustainability: Harper College
The “We’re Still Screwed” Project: Understanding the problem of climate change and the necessarily large solutions. What would happen if the US eliminated all gas powered cars, or if the entirety of residential electricity was switched to solar power? Harper Chemistry Professor, Joe Wachter, will take us through a series of investigations like those performed by his CHM 103 students that estimate the global effect of common climate change solutions.

Report #1: Hobart, Australia, to Mawson, Antarctica
Added to the ice everywhere was a very light snowfall - definitely felt you were in Antarctica! From there the sightings started pouring in. In addition to recording whales and their habitat (ice-types), we're also recording seals. It got really busy as crabeater seals were resting on ice floes everywhere as we crunched past. Antarctic minke whale recordings were trickling in at a few an hour, but enough to keep the interest up.

Climate Change is Moving Mountains, Research Says
For millions of years global climate change has altered the structure and internal movement of mountain ranges, but the resulting glacial development and erosion can in turn change a mountain’s local climate. The degree of this cause-and-effect relationship has never been clearly observed, until now. Terminus of the Hubbard Glacier at Resurrection Bay.

Research In Antarc/ca
It is suspected that the Antarctic Peninsulas air temperature has increased 3°C or 37°F steadily. This has not only affected life in the Antarctic but an increase in ocean temperatures in the western part of the Peninsula has been consistent since 1955. One major thing affected by this climate change is penguins. In Antarctica there are about 20 million different types of penguins, some species of penguins that have been affected by this decline in ice are the Adelie Penguin and the Emperor penguins.
