Earth paleoenvironments records preserved in mid- and low-latitude glaciers by L. DeWayne Cecil ( )
20 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 964 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 )
3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Glacial balance is 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 affected by the dwindling tropical glacier reserve, the canaries in the mine regarding climate change. Along the way, we are accompanied by scientists who give us a perspective on what is happening in the natural world and what we can expect. And from that, we learn of the chain reaction effect that these disappearing glaciers are having on us and the rest of the world
Microparticles, ice sheets and climate by Lonnie G Thompson ( Book )
8 editions published between 1976 and 1979 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Analysis of the concentration of microparticles in an ice core from Byrd Station, Antarctica by Lonnie G Thompson ( Book )
4 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Earth's changing climate by Richard Wolfson ( )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 16 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
Tropical ice core paleoclimatic records, Quelccaya Ice Cap, Peru, A.D. 470 to 1984 by Lonnie G Thompson ( Book )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Particles and climate by Lonnie G Thompson ( Recording )
1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 3 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
Archived in ice rescuing the climate record ( Visual )
in English and held by 3 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
