Full Description


This book presents a collection of 17 papers by authors from diverse backgrounds dealing with multi-disciplinary research on the Patagonian ice fields. The main emphasis is glaciology, climatology and paleoclimatology, with contributions in glacier ecology, microbiology and aerosols. The volume is the proceedings of a meeting held on board a Chilean Navy ship, which sailed along the fjords, where the participants had the opportunity of actually setting foot on the Southern Patagonia ice field. It presents an updated review of glacier and climate-related research of the Patagonian ice fields, and should be for anyone interested in the Patagonian glaciers and the surrounding environment.
