Paleoclimatology

Most popular at the top

  • 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...

  • Tree Rings and Climateby H Fritts

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Tree Rings and Climate deals with the principles of dendrochronology, with emphasis on tree-ring studies involving climate-related problems. This book looks at the spatial and temporal variations in tree-ring growth and how they can be used to reconstruct past climate. Factors and conditions that appear most relevant to tree-ring research are highlighted.... more...

  • Climateby H. H. Lamb

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 290.00

    "First Published in 1972, Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company." more...

  • Interhemispheric Climate Linkagesby Vera Markgraf

    Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 127.95

    This book presents a novel approach in the field of global change by presenting a comprehensive analysis of interhemispheric linkages of climate, present and past, and their effects on human societies. The ultimate goal of this interhemispheric integration is to improve our understanding of causes and mechanisms of climate change to enhance our capability... more...

  • Late Quaternary Climate Change and Human Adaptation in Arid Chinaby D.B. Madsen; F. Chen; X. Gao

    Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 200.00

    Due to political pressures, prior to the 1990s little was known about the nature of human foraging adaptations in the deserts, grasslands, and mountains of north western China during the last glacial period. Even less was known about the transition to agriculture that followed. Now open to foreign visitation, there is now an increasing understanding... more...
