Advances in the First Decade of the Twenty First Century

By the mid-1990s with the work of the ANTOSTRAT regional groups coming to a close, and planning well advanced for further geological data gathering by ODP and sea-ice drilling (Cape Roberts Project), the value of modelling as a means of illustrating geologically based scenarios, as well as using geological information to constrain models, seemed increasingly obvious. This was the theme of ANTOSTRAT workshops in Hobart (AU) in 1997 (Cooper and Webb, 1998; Webb and Cooper, 1998), Wellington (NZ) in 1999 and Erice (IT) in 2001 (Cooper et al., 2002), with the latter providing the starting point for the current SCAR Scientific Programme on Antarctic Climate Evolution (ACE).
