Record #125838:

The case for a stable east Antarctic ice sheet: the background / David E. Sugden, David R. Marchant, George H. Denton.

Title: The case for a stable east Antarctic ice sheet: the background / David E. Sugden, David R. Marchant, George H. Denton.
Author(s): Sugden, David E.
Marchant, David R.
Denton, George H.
Date: 1993.
In: Geografiska Annaler. Series A. Physical Geography. (1993.), Vol. 75A(4) (1993)
Abstract: Introduction to this special issue. Summarizes two views. One is that ice sheet has been fluctuating dramatically throughout its existence, disappearing completely during warmer Pliocene, 3 Ma ago. Therefore, current ice sheet is susceptible to global warming. Other view is that ice sheet has been stable for about 14 Ma and continent has been subjected to unbroken cold polar conditions since then. It is hoped that papers presented at Vega Symposium in 1993, published in this issue, will lend support to evidence for stability of east Antarctic ice sheet since Middle Miocene time.
