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

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 221.00

    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...

  • Southern Hemisphere Paleo- and Neoclimatesby Peter Smolka; Wolfgang Volkheimer

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 99.00

    Climate models show that climate change is not a uniform process. Areas of increased temperature are situated near areas of decreased temperature, areas with increased precipitation adjoin areas of drought. This is one of the reasons why climate change is so difficult to detect. Any parameter must be considered and tested locally or regionally and... 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...

  • Past Climate Variability through Europe and Africaby Richard W. Battarbee; Françoise Gasse; Catherine E. Stickley

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 159.00

    This book provides a major synthesis of evidence for past climate variability at the regional and continental scale across Europe and Africa. It focuses on two complementary time-scales, the Holocene (approximately the last 11,500 years) and the last glacial-interglacial cycle (approximately the last 130,000 years). An overview of the climate system... more...

  • The Climate in Historical Timesby Hubertus Fischer; Thomas Kumke; Gerrit Lohmann; Heinrich Miller; Jorg Negendank

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 339.00

    An Introduction to the KIHZ Project The description of the climate system and the quantification of its natural variability and dynamics is essential to assess an ongoing anthropogenic cli­ mate change and to validate climate and biogeochemical models to allow for reliable projections into the future. Because the spatio-temporal coverage of direct... more...

  • Mollusk shells as bio-geo-archivesby Sandra Gordillo; María Sol Bayer; Gabriella Boretto; Melisa Charó

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 54.99

    In view of the wide range of disciplines involved in Quaternary research, this book offers a one-stop resource for the Quaternary research community, since it reviews the latest techniques and provides an approach to how mollusk shell remains are used in the reconstruction of marine environments in southern South America. Written by specialists in... more...

  • Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas) in the Permo-Carboniferousby Kate Horan

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 99.00

    This book focuses on the sedimentology of the Hells Kitchen Member of the Port Sussex Formation in East Falkland (Isla Soledad, Las Malvinas). It closely examines two sediment cores spanning these formations that were recovered from the Falkland Islands in 2008 following a mineral exploration programme. The integrated approach of this research, which... more...

  • Climateby H. H. Lamb

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 290.00

  • 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...

  • 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...
