Abstract

The 26 papers in this volume comprise those presented at the International Symposium on Antarctic Earth Sciences in Edinburgh in July 2011, as well as several invited review papers, on Antarctic geology and geomorphology. These papers demonstrate a remarkable diversity of Earth science interests in the Antarctic. It is evident that during recent decades there has been a marked change in emphasis from pre-Cenozoic geology to topics related to the 34 million years of directly documented Antarctic glacial history. Increasing emphasis is being placed on the documentation and understanding of the palaeorecord of ice-sheet growth and decay. Furthermore, Antarctic Earth history is providing us with important information about potential future trends, as the impact of global warming is increasingly felt on the continent and its ocean.
