Abstract/ Summary

The production of environmental change records using time-series data retrieved from ice cores has seen minimal application in the Transantarctic Mountains despite the existence of a well-developed lower resolution glacial geologic record for this area which forms the primary basis for understanding the glacial history of East Antarctica. In addition, records derived from marine and lake cores, glacier margin fluctuation studies, measures of volcanic activity, and meteorological data sets from within or close to the Transantarctic Mountains are available for comparison. This emerging environmental data-base provides the tools needed to define the change characteristics, over a period of thousands of years, of several major dynamic components in this region, e.g., climate, atmospheric chemistry, sea-ice extent, volcanic activity, and atmospheric turbidity.
