Project description

HOLANT will determine how the climate of coastal Antarctic regions has varied during the Holocene and especially how records from these coastal areas and inland locations (ice cores) are interrelated with respect to timing, duration and magnitude of climate variation. In addition, we will relate previous temperature excursions to changes in regional ice sheet volume and global-scale climate anomalies.
