Earth paleoenvironments : records preserved in mid- and low-latitude glaciers by L. DeWayne Cecil( Book )

19 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Glaciers provide an unparalleled tool for studying global environmental change. This book is the first of its kind concentrating on the paleoenvironmental record archived in mid- and low-latitude glaciers. By concentrating mainly on the last 500 years of these records, we can now see that laws enacted to protect our environment in Europe and North America are providing positive results. Documenting global mid- and low-latitude paleoenvironmental records in glaciers, this volume forms a timely and essential complement to the wealth of literature on polar and Greenland ice sheet records. This text is directed towards undergraduate and graduate university audiences and forms an ideal supplement in courses dealing with climate and global environmental change, glaciology, and natural resources management. It is also suitable in helping teach application of innovative analytical and interpretive methods and would be an excellent example of the rapidly emerging discipline of "Forensic Earth Science."
Glacial balance( Visual )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A journey along the spine of the Andes mountain range, from Colombia to Argentina, getting to know the individuals and lives of those who are first affected by the dwindling tropical glacier reserve, the canaries in the mine. Along the way, scientists give us a perspective on what is happening in the natural world and what we can expect
Archived in Ice Rescuing the Climate Record( Visual )

in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Summary of resulting Science Bulletin video: Follow scientist-adventurer Lonnie Thompson to the 5,670-meter-high Quelccaya ice cap in the Peruvian Andes. Thompson and his team from Ohio State University are racing to core a cylinder of 1,500-year-old ice to unravel the past climate patterns of this region - before our gradually warming climate melts this invaluable record away. By analyzing global ice cores, glaciologists like Thompson now have a well-preserved record for 150,000 years of climate history, allowing us to better predict future climate change

Earth's changing climate by Richard Wolfson( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Earth's climate is a sensitive system that is subject to dramatic shifts over varying time scales. Today human activities are altering the climate system by increasing concentrations of heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, which raises global temperatures. In this unit, examine the science behind global climate change and explore its potential impacts on natural ecosystems and human societies."--Annenberg website

ENSO and PDO variability during the past 100 years by David Urmann( )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary goal of this study is to reconstruct ENSO (El Nino Southern Oscillation) variability over the past 100-years from ice core and lake level records. Records of accumulation, deuterium excess, and dO18 from the ice core records obtained from Quelccaya (Peru) and Bona-Churchill (Alaska), along with lake elevation data from Crater Lake (Oregon) and Lake Titicaca (Peru) are examined. This work relies on the use of several ENSO proxies from different regions to reconstruct ENSO variability over the past 100 years. Utilizing data from multiple regions is critical as past studies attempting to reconstruct a record of El Nino events from proxy records have encountered two main problems, both resulting from relying on data collected only from one specific region. The first problem is that many climate patterns within a region not associated with ENSO can produce El Niño type effects in the record. The second problem is that regional data records local climate patterns, which reflect only the strength of the ENSO teleconnection through time. The records from Quelccaya and Lake Titicaca are shown to be strongly impacted by ENSO events. The records from Bona-Churchill and Crater Lake are shown to be strongly related to Aleutian Low variability. Variations in the strength of the Aleutian Low represent the primary North American ENSO teleconnection and are also related to the mode of the PDO (Pacific Decadal Oscillation). Correlations analysis shows the primary relationship between records from Peru and North American is their response to ENSO
Particles and climate by Lonnie G Thompson( Recording )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lonnie Thompson discusses his research on the dust particles found in ice cores from various glaciers. He notes that the dust found in periods of glaciation seems to be of volcanic origin, thereby suggesting a connection between volcanic activity and major climatic changes
