GEACEP-ISODYN: Icehouse Earth: Stability Or DYNamism?
Entry ID: GB-NERC-BAS-PDC-00518

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: GEACEP will investigate the relationship between the evolution of Antarctic ice and the changing global environment over the last ~30 million years (My). We will do so through collecting and combining geological data and developing computer models of the Earth as an integrated system. The aim is to clarify the forcing and feedback mechanisms responsible for the formation of large-scale Antarctic ... View entire text

Purpose: Objectives include:
* Examine the nature of past warm climates over the last 30My
* Clarify the forcing and feedback mechanisms associated with the climatic shift from ''greenhouse'' to ''icehouse'' conditions ~30My ago
* Examine the stability of the permanent Antarctic ice sheet over its ~20My history
