DeWayneEarth paleoenvironments records preserved in mid- and low-latitude glaciersGlaciers 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"+-+8096757596418ocn003697681book19760.93Thompson, Lonnie GMicroparticles, ice sheets and climate161ocn496286755com20070.35Earth's changing climate"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 website61ocn867721517visu20130.92Glacial balanceGlacial 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 world51ocn730131580art20050.47Ice cores from tropical mountain glaciers as archives of climate change42ocn070522423book19820.92Mosley-Thompson, EllenMicroparticle analysis of the Ross Ice Shelf Q-13 core and preliminary results from the J-9 core41ocn032812748book19921.00Thompson, Lonnie GTropical ice core paleoclimatic records, Quelccaya Ice Cap, Peru, A.D. 470 to 1984Observations32ocn770401595art19811.00Thompson, Lonnie GTemporal variability of microparticle properties in polar ice sheets32ocn770372816art19850.47Thompson, Lonnie GA 1500-year record of tropical precipitation in ice cores from the Quelccaya Ice Cap, Peru31ocn770381107art19890.47Thompson, Lonnie GHolocene-Late Pleistocene climatic ice core records from Quinghai-Tibetan Plateau32ocn704014894book19791.00Thompson, Lonnie GGlaciological interpretation of microparticle concentrations from the French 905-m Dome C, Antarctica core33ocn770401602art19821.00MOSLEY-THOMPSON, ENine centuries of microparticle deposition at the South Pole32ocn770400963art19821.00Thompson, Lonnie GGeophysical investigations of the tropical Quelccaya ice cap, Peru31ocn770375761art19880.47Thompson, Lonnie GPre-Incan agricultural activity recorded in dust layers in two tropical ice cores31ocn005005461rcrd19760.47Thompson, Lonnie GParticles and climateLonnie Thompson discusses his research on the dust particles found in ice cores from various glaciers.
