Abstract : The monograph summarizes the climatology of the cold regions of the Southern Hemisphere which consist almost entirely of the Antarctic Continent. Comparisons with the northern cold regions are followed by a systematic treatment of general circulation, the energy budget, and meteorological elements forming the climate of the region. Thirty-two illustrations (many of several parts) and ten tables give climatological data, and a selected bibliography of 281 items provides complete coverage for further details. (Author)
