Special Issue "Climate Variability in Antarctica and the Southern Hemisphere over the Last Millennia"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 May 2019).
This Special Issue of Geosciences aims to gather high quality original research articles and reviews on climate variability in Antarctica and the Southern Hemisphere over the last millennia.
We would like to invite members of the paleoclimate community to submit articles addressing how large-scale modes of atmospheric and oceanic variability, such as: the Southern Annual Mode (SAM), the Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation (IPO) and El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO); influence the climate in Antarctica and the Southern Hemisphere on both a regional and hemispheric scale. We aim to improve our current understanding of the dominant modes of atmospheric and oceanic variability through evaluation of paleoclimate archives and modelling studies covering the past millennia. We particularly encourage data-model inter comparison and multi-proxy studies.
We encourage submissions based on the following topics:
- Paleoclimate reconstructions from ice cores
- Paleoclimate reconstructions from marine sediments
- Paleoclimate reconstructions from terrestrial records (peat, lake sediments, etc.)
- Southern Hemisphere modes of climate variability (e.g., SAM and westerly winds)
- Past surface mass balance and glacial dynamics
- Past sea ice conditions
- Past ocean conditions (circulation, meltwater, productivity, etc.)
- Low-high latitude connections
- Modelled climate variability
- Data–model intercomparison
We encourage authors to submit a short abstract, outlining the proposed research article, to the editors prior to submitting a full manuscript to ensure its fit with the objectives of this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Geosciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
