Coastal studies at Heard Island 1992/93: changes in sea surface temperature and coastal landforms / Ken Green.

Title: Coastal studies at Heard Island 1992/93: changes in sea surface temperature and coastal landforms / Ken Green.
Author(s): Green, Ken.
Date: 2000.
Abstract: Describes evidence of warming in sub-Antarctic Heard Island area and its impact on coastal morphology in area of active erosion by water and wind in arc from Winston Lagoon on south-eastern coast to Compton Lagoon on north-eastern coast. Sea temperature was measured weekly at Spit Bay from April 1992 to March 1993. Temperatures were generally higher than those recorded in 1949 at Atlas Cove, though sites are not strictly comparable. Sea temperatures around island were stable from 1920s to 1940s, with general increase in sea surface temperatures in region being recent phenomenon accompanied by widespread glacial retreat and accelerated erosion of coastal features since early 1950s, probably as result of strong erosive water movement along coast. Discusses implications of movements of this dynamic coastline for long-term monitoring studies and management of island.
