Abstract This report of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research was prepared as a contribution to the International Polar Year 2007-08. This chapter presents research performed during what the authors call the Instrumental Period (beginning in the 1600s). Sections include: Changes in atmospheric circulation; Temperature changes; Changes in Antarctic snowfall over the past 50 years; Atmospheric chemistry; the Southern Ocean; Antarctic sea ice cover during the Instrumental Period; The ice sheet and permafrost; Long term sea level change; Marine biology; Biochemistry--Southern Ocean carbon cycle response to historical climate change; and Terrestrial biology.
