Paleoclimatology

  • The Two-Mile Time Machineby Richard B. Alley; Richard B. Alley

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 17.95

    In the 1990s Richard B. Alley 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. In The Two-Mile Time Machine , Alley tells the fascinating history of global climate changes as revealed by reading the annual rings of ice from cores drilled in Greenland. He explains that... more...

  • Natural Climate Variability and Global Warmingby Richard W. Battarbee; Heather A. Binney

    Wiley 2009; US$ 133.95

    Whilst there is now overwhelming evidence that greenhouse-gas pollution is becoming the dominant process responsible for global warming, it is also clear that the climate system varies quite naturally on different time-scales. Predicting the course of future climate change consequently requires an understanding of the natural variability of the climate... 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...

  • Paleoclimatologyby Raymond S. Bradley

    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...

  • 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...

  • Biotic Response to Global Changeby Stephen J. Culver; Peter F. Rawson

    Cambridge University Press 2000; US$ 104.00

    Investigates the reaction of life to global environmental change, for researchers and graduate students. more...

  • Quaternary Glaciationsby J. Ehlers; P.L. Gibbard

    Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 275.00

    This book is the first of three volumes in which the recent knowledge of the extent and chronology of Quaternary glaciations has been compiled on a global scale. This information is seen as a fundamental requirement, not only for the glacial workers, but for the wider user-community of general Quaternary workers. In particular the need for accurate... more...

  • Climate Modes of the Phanerozoicby Lawrence A. Frakes; Jane E. Francis; Jozef I. Syktus

    Cambridge University Press 1992; US$ 54.00

    The evolution of the Earth's climate throughout the past 600 million years is examined by assessing the most up-to-date information on the warm and cold states of the Earth's past climates. These studies help determine the major mechanisms of climate change on a geological time scale. more...
