dc.description.abstract In this review we outline how the earth抯 climate evolved and took shape in response to the geological evolution of continental Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. We then summarise global climate, climate change, the role of the oceans and the Antarctic ecosystem. This leads to identified links between present day global and southern hemisphere climate with Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. Finally, we hope to provide some insight into the possible feedback responses of these high latitudes to future climate change scenarios. Current South African marine research programmes which address these issues are also outlined. en_ZA
