Global Climate Change and the Soils of Cierva Point on the Danco Coast, Antarctic Peninsula
Entry ID: CDA_AR_GEO_SOIL_DANCO_COAST


[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The temperature increase registered during the last 30 years on the
Antarctic Peninsula has provoked melting in large areas that were
formerly occupied by glaciers. The disappearance of the glaciers has
created a circumstance that allows reasearchers to see and to study
soils generated before glaciation, how they evolve in the present and
to deduce their distribution in the landscape. Melting of large areas
generates a mass movement of water, which attacks vegetation and soil
and increases the likelihood of their disappearance.
