The polar regions have experienced some remarkable environmental changes in recent decades, such as the Antarctic ozone hole, the loss of large amounts of sea ice from the Arctic Ocean and major warming on the Antarctic Peninsula. The polar regions are also predicted to warm more than any other region on Earth over the next century if greenhouse gas concentrations continue to rise. Yet trying to separate natural climate variability from anthropogenic factors still presents many problems. This book presents a thorough review of how the polar climates have changed over the last million years and sets recent changes within a long term perspective. The approach taken is highly cross-disciplinary and the close links between the atmosphere, ocean and ice at high latitudes are stressed. The volume will be invaluable for researchers and advanced students in polar science, climatology, global change, meteorology, oceanography and glaciology.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Both authors have extensive experience of the Antarctic regions from the course of their work for the British Antarctic Survey, and this experience and knowledge is clearly present in the book.' IEA Greenhouse Gas Programme
"This book is well illustrated with numerous black-and-white graphs and maps...The work could serve as a useful resource for senior undergraduate or graduate courses dealing with climate change and/or polar regions. Recommended." - CHOICE
"This book fills a gap in the polar climate literature. [It] can be recommended as a comprehensive account of polar climatic change suitable for beginning graduate students in climatology and as a reference work for polar scientists." -Roger G. Barry, Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research
