dc.description.abstractENGLISH SUMMARY : The modern climate of the Prince Edward Islands has been described as one of the most oceanic and stable on earth (Schulze 1971; Van Zinderen Bakker 1978; le Roux 2008). Indeed, on the basis of the typically low daily amplitude of temperatures and their small variation between summer and winter, this characterization is correct. However, over both longer and shorter timescales, stability is something of a caricature. The islands have changed dramatically over the course of their history. Although much remains to be learned about the sequence of glaciation and volcanism on both islands (Boelhouwers et al. 2008), it is clear that they underwent considerable modification as a result of changing global climates and isostatic adjustment that was a consequence thereof.en_ZA
