    This chapter provides up-to-date coverage on the geophysical, chemical, and biological properties of the lakes that lie beneath the Antarctic ice cap (subglacial lakes). There are at least lakes beneath this ice cap and many may be connected by networks of subglacial streams and rivers. The most well known of these lakes is Lake Vostok. Recent evidence indicates that subglacial . Book. Polar Lakes and Rivers Edited by Warwick F. Vincent and Johanna Laybourn-Parry.

    The book aims to be a useful introduction to newcomers in the field of polar limnology as well as a reference book for researchers expe-rienced in this field.

Kalff was a significant contributor to our understanding of limnology with his life's research, and he shows a mastery of the concepts and excellent skill in explanations. The book considers lakes as well as wetlands, stream and rivers.

    Climate and the atmosphere. Heat and temperature. Athospheric moisture. Motion in the atmosphere. Weather disturbances. Climatic classification. Climates dominated by equatorial and tropical air masses. Climates dominated by tropical and polar air masses. Climates dominated by polar and arctic air masses highland climates. Climate, vegetation, and soils. This book provides a unique and cutting edge synthesis of Antarctic limnology, drawing together current knowledge on geomorphology, morphometry, chemistry, community structure and function. It emphasises throughout the value of these near-pristine ecosystems as barometers of climate change, showing how responsive and vulnerable they are to the.

There is now an increased awareness of the importance of polar regions in the Earth system, as well as their vulnerability. Polar is a webcomic and series of graphic novels written and illustrated by Victor ing "international hitman Black Kaiser", the webcomic is inspired by a variety of action and noir fiction.

Polar is characterized by its highly stylized design and complete lack of dialogue, though speech balloons were added in the graphic novel publications by Dark Horse. Polar Biology publishes Original Papers, Reviews, and Short Notes and is the focal point for biologists working in polar regions.
