Paleoclimatology

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

    Springer 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...

  • 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...

  • Statistical Methods for Spatial Planning and Monitoringby Silvestro Montrone; Paola Perchinunno

    Springer 2012; US$ 99.00

    The book aims to investigate methods and techniques for spatial statistical analysis suitable to model spatial information in support of decision systems. Over the last few years there has been a considerable interest in these tools and in the role they can play in spatial planning and environmental modelling. One of the earliest and most famous definition... 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • The Two-Mile Time Machineby Richard B. Alley

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 25.95

    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...

  • 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...
