Paleoclimatology

Most popular at the top

  • Tropical and sub-tropical West Africaby P. Giresse

    Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 305.00

    West Africa and the eastern Atlantic stretching from Mauritania in the north to Namibia in the south offer a large latitudinal stretch incorporating nearly symmetrical climatic gradients from the Equator. On the time scale of Quaternary Glacial and Interglacial cycles, today, we possess well-documented and recently published marine sedimentary records... more...

  • Climate Changes during the Holocene and their Impact on Hydrological Systemsby Arie S. Issar

    Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 52.00

    Comprehensive review of effects of climate variability on hydrological and human systems in the Holocene. more...

  • Borehole Climatologyby Louise Bodri; Vladimir Cermak

    Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 250.00

    Climate for the 21st century is expected to be considerably different from the present and recent past. Industrialization growth combined with the increasing CO2 concentration in the atmosphere and massive deforestation are well above the values over the past several decades and are expected to further grow. Air temperature is rising rapidly well as... more...

  • Global Palaeoclimate of the Late Cenozoicby V.A. Zubakov; I.I. Borzenkova

    Elsevier Science 1990; US$ 72.95

    This is a detailed description of the history and chronology of global climate based on event-signal stratigraphy. The history of global climate is described for the last fifty million years with the description for the last one million years in detail. Climatostratigraphic sequences of twelve key regions are taken as a basis, eight of them situated... more...

  • International geophysics seriesby John Marshall; R. Alan Plumb

    Elsevier Science 1979; US$ 79.95

    For advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students in atmospheric, oceanic, and climate science, Atmosphere, Ocean and Climate Dynamics is an introductory textbook on the circulations of the atmosphere and ocean and their interaction, with an emphasis on global scales. It will give students a good grasp of what the atmosphere and oceans look... more...

  • The Two-Mile Time Machineby Richard B. Alley

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 38.50

    Richard Alley, one of the world's leading climate researchers, tells the fascinating history of global climate changes as revealed by reading the annual rings of ice from cores drilled in Greenland. In the 1990s he and his colleagues made headlines with the discovery that the last ice age came to an abrupt end over a period of only three years. Here... more...

  • Reconstructing Earth's Climate Historyby Kristen St John; R. Mark Leckie; Kate Pound; Megan Jones; Lawrence Krissek

    Wiley 2012; US$ 181.00

    The context for understanding global climate change today lies in the records of Earth’s past. This is demonstrated by decades of paleoclimate research by scientists in organizations such as the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP), the Antarctic Geological Drilling Program (ANDRILL), and many others. The purpose of this full colour textbook... more...

  • Paleoclimatesby Thomas M. Cronin

    Columbia University Press 2009; US$ 94.99

    The field of paleoclimatology relies on physical, chemical, and biological proxies of past climate changes that have been preserved in natural archives such as glacial ice, tree rings, sediments, corals, and speleothems. Paleoclimate archives obtained through field investigations, ocean sediment coring expeditions, ice sheet coring programs, and... more...

  • Quaternary Environmental Change in the Tropicsby Sarah E. Metcalfe; David J. Nash

    Wiley 2012; US$ 133.95

    The global climate changes that led to the expansion and contraction of high latitude ice sheets during the Quaternary period were associated with equally dramatic changes in tropical environments. These included shifts in vegetation zones, changes in the hydrology and ecology of lakes and rivers, and fluctuations in the size of mountain glaciers and... more...

  • Ostracoda as Proxies for Quaternary Climate Changeby David Horne; Jonathan Holmes; Finn Viehberg; Julio Rodriguez-Lazaro

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 225.00

    Ostracod crustaceans, common microfossils in marine and freshwater sedimentary records, supply evidence of past climatic conditions via indicator species, transfer function and mutual climatic range approaches as well as the trace element and stable isotope geochemistry of their shells. As methods of using ostracods as Quaternary palaeoclimate proxies... more...
