Earth's Climate Evolution.


Earth's Climate Evolution

Colin P. Summerhayes



394 pages




Scientist-author Summerhayes provides an encompassing yet detailed review of reports and other data related to the history of the earth's climate as well as the cycles of climate shifts that have occurred over millions of years. He addresses climate evolution and also the evolution that has taken place in the sciences as they have attempted to interpret and evaluate that history. In addition to data, the author also draws from his experiences in paleoclimatological study and related fields. A sampling of subjects addressed include: ice age cycles, geographic changes, mapping past climates, the maturing of the greenhouse theory, measuring and modeling carbon dioxide through time, numerical climate models and case histories, the Holocene Interglacial, and more. The book will interest undergraduate and post graduate students as well as science historians and others in climate-related disciplines. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
