The Antarctic Climate Change and the Environment (ACCE) Report

Antarctic Climate Change and the Environment (ACCE) is a major report that synthesizes the present knowledge on the past and possible future changes in the physical environment of Antarctica and the Southern Ocean and their impact on the biota. Preparation of the report was led by the SCAR Antarctica and the Global Climate System (AGCS) group with input from many other SCAR and external groups and individuals.
