  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • The Climate in Historical Timesby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 359.00

    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...

  • 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...

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

    Springer Milan 2012; US$ 109.00

    This book covers methods for spatial statistical analysis suitable for modeling spatial information in support of decision systems. Includes data mining, point processes analysis, nearest neighbor statistics and cluster detection, Fuzzy Regression and more. more...

  • Quaternary Environmental Change in the Tropicsby Sarah E. Metcalfe; David J. Nash

    Wiley 2012; US$ 129.95

    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$ 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...
