Book Description

This is the first book to provide a comprehensive overview of climate change-related investigations carried out by Indian researchers through initiatives in southern high latitude regions. It explains climate variability over the Southern Ocean and Antarctica; air, sea, ice, and atmosphere interactions and the impact of climate variability on sea ice, and polar atmosphere. Using data gathered by two Indian research bases Maitri and Bharti, ideal sites to study and understand climatic evolution in Antarctic in the past and the recent changes. This book helps understand climatological perspectives and evaluate some of the most pressing issues in the south polar region.
