- 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...
- Elsevier Science 1999; US$ 109.95
Raymond S. Bradley provides his readers with a comprehensive and up-to-date review of all of the important methods used in paleoclimatic reconstruction, dating and paleoclimate modeling. Two comprehensive chapters on dating methods provide the foundation for all paleoclimatic studies and are followed by up-to-date coverage of ice core research, continental... more...
- Springer Netherlands 2009; US$ 129.00
This book features overviews and research papers dealing with South American climate variability from the Last Glacial Maximum to the Holocene. It presents an insight into dynamics of the past and provides a work of reference for data-model comparison. more...
- Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 179.00
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 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...
- Wiley 2012; US$ 95.95
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...
- 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...
- 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...
- Springer Netherlands 2010; US$ 159.00
Providing a state-of-the-art review of the field, this volume presents current advances in dendroclimatology, and looks ahead to potential future developments. The material is of particular interest to climatologists, hydrologists, ecologists and archeologists. more...
