Arctic Ocean Sediments: Processes, Proxies, and by R. Stein

By R. Stein

even though it is usually authorized that the Arctic Ocean is a truly delicate and demanding zone for adjustments within the international weather, this zone is the final significant physiographic province of the earth whose short-and long term geological heritage is far much less recognized compared to different ocean areas. This lack of knowledge is principally because of the most important technological/logistic difficulties in achieving this harsh, ice-covered quarter with basic learn vessels and in retrieving lengthy and undisturbed sediment cores. throughout the the final approximately twenty years, despite the fact that, numerous overseas and multidisciplinary send expeditions, together with the 1st medical drilling on Lomonosov Ridge in 2004, a break-through in Arctic examine, have been conducted into the significant Artic and its surrounding shelf seas. effects from those expeditions have significantly complex our wisdom on Arctic Ocean paleoenvironments.
Published syntheses in regards to the wisdom on Arctic Ocean geology, nonetheless, are in keeping with facts on hand sooner than 1990. A complete compilation of knowledge on Arctic Ocean paleoenvironment and its short-and long term variability in keeping with the massive volume of latest information together with the ACEX drilling facts, has no longer been on hand but. With this booklet, providing (1) certain details on glacio-marine sedimentary tactics and geological proxies used for paleoenvironmental reconstructions, and (2) particular geological info on glossy environments, Quaternary variability on various time scales in addition to the long term weather heritage in the course of Mesozoic-Tertiary occasions, this hole in wisdom could be filled.
