The Antarctic Peninsula. a relatively long. narrow extension of the Antarctic continent defines a strong climatic gradient between the cold. dry continental regime to its south and the warm. moist maritime regime to its north. The potential for these contrasting climate regimes to shift in dominance from season to season and year to year creates a highly variable environment that is sensitive to climate perturbation. Consequently. long-term studies in the western Antarctic Peninsula (WAP… CONTINUE READING
