Abstract: To determine how the climate of the Antarctic Peninsula during the Holocene (last 10,000 years) is related to global scale patterns and trends, in order to understand the significance of current environmental changes in the region

If we are to trust models used to predict future climate change, we need to be assured that they can reproduce the spatial and temporal pattern of natural climate ... View entire text

Purpose: Objectives include:
*To determine the response, during the Holocene (last 10,000 years) and glacial-Holocene transition, along a latitudinal transect from the Antarctic Peninsula to the Americas?
*To understand how previous warm periods in Antarctica have been related to global climate
*To determine where, along a transect from Antarctica through the Americas, the climate influence of Antarctica gives way to one more reminiscent of the northern hemisphere
