By R. Stein

even though it is mostly permitted that the Arctic Ocean is a really delicate and critical zone for adjustments within the worldwide weather, this sector is the final significant physiographic province of the earth whose short-and long term geological background is way much less recognized compared to different ocean areas. This lack of information is principally attributable to the key technological/logistic difficulties in achieving this harsh, ice-covered quarter with common learn vessels and in retrieving lengthy and undisturbed sediment cores. in the course of the the final approximately two decades, although, numerous foreign and multidisciplinary send expeditions, together with the 1st medical drilling on Lomonosov Ridge in 2004, a break-through in Arctic learn, have been conducted into the critical Artic and its surrounding shelf seas. effects from those expeditions have drastically complicated our wisdom on Arctic Ocean paleoenvironments.
Published syntheses concerning the wisdom on Arctic Ocean geology, however, are according to information on hand ahead of 1990. A finished compilation of information on Arctic Ocean paleoenvironment and its short-and long term variability according to the massive volume of recent facts together with the ACEX drilling information, has now not been on hand but. With this ebook, featuring (1) distinct details on glacio-marine sedimentary procedures and geological proxies used for paleoenvironmental reconstructions, and (2) distinctive geological information on smooth environments, Quaternary variability on diversified 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.
