even though it is mostly accredited that the Arctic Ocean is a really delicate and significant quarter for adjustments within the worldwide weather, this sector is the final significant physiographic province of the earth whose short-and long term geological historical past is far much less identified compared to different ocean areas.

Published syntheses concerning the wisdom on Arctic Ocean geology, however, are according to info on hand ahead of 1990. A finished compilation of knowledge on Arctic Ocean paleoenvironment and its short-and long term variability in response to the massive quantity of recent information together with the ACEX drilling facts, has now not been to be had but. With this ebook, offering (1) targeted details on glacio-marine sedimentary approaches and geological proxies used for paleoenvironmental reconstructions, and (2) targeted geological facts on glossy environments, Quaternary variability on varied time scales in addition to the long term weather historical past in the course of Mesozoic-Tertiary instances, this hole in wisdom should be filled.
