Paleoclimatology: Reconstructing Climates of the Quaternary (International Geophysics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Praise for the first edition:

"An indispensable work of reference for scientists and students alike."

--Quarternary Science Reviews

"There can be little doubt that overall this book is a great success in the way the information is assimilated, explained and placed in a global context."

--Journal of Quarternary Science

"A book which ought to be read as a primer by anyone with a critical interest in the field."

--Earth Surface Processes and :Landforms

"Unrivaled in the sophistication with which it examines a wide range of methods."

--K.W. Butzer, Journal of Archeological Science

"A resounding success... indispensable reading for anyone involved in paleoclimatic reconstruction or paleoclimatic modeling."

--L.D.D. Harvey, University of Toronto

In the fourteen years since the highly successful first edition of Paleoclimatology was published, there have been many advances in the principles and methods used in paleoclimatic reconstruction, dating, and paleoclimate modeling. The Second Edition has been extensively rewritten and updated to reflect these advances.

Paleoclimatology: Reconstructing Climates of the Quarternary is the only book that:

* Covers all the important methods of dating

*Addresses all the important methods used in paleoclimatic reconstruction

*Reviews the use of models in paleoclimatology

*Contains an extensive and up-to-date bibliography of over 1,700 references

*Is abundantly illustrated with comprehensive figure captions

About the author

Ray Bradley is Professor and Head of the Department of Geosciences at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He has authored/edited five books and published more than 100 articles on climatology and climate change over a wide range of time scales.

Book News Annotation:

Allows specialists in any of the subdisciplines investigating past climate to understand at least the basics of what is happening in other areas of the field. Covers paleoclimatic reconstruction, climate and climatic variation, dating methods, ice cores, marine sediments and corals, non-marine geological and biological evidence, pollen analysis, dendroclimatology, documentary data, and paleoclimate models. Appends calculations and web-based resources. Updated throughout from the 1985 edition. All the front matter mistakenly identifies the volume number as 64.

About the Author

Raymond S. Bradley has been involved in many national and international activities related to paleoclimatology, most notably as the current Chair of the Scientific Steering Committee for the International Geosphere-Biosphere Program on Past Global Changes (IGBP-PAGES). He has published dozens of articles in scientific journals, and has edited several important books in paleoclimatology. The first edition of Quaternary Paleoclimatology has been the definitive text in this field for over a decade. His research is in climatology, specifically in climatic change and the evidence for how the earth’s climate has varied in the past. He has carried out research on climate variation, both on the long (glacial and interglacial) time-scale and on the short (historical and instrumental) time-scale, involving the analysis of data from all over the world. In recent years he has been involved in studies of natural climate variability, to provide a background for understanding potential anthropogenic changes in climate resulting from rapid increases in "greenhouse gases" over the last century or so. R.S. Bradley has been a professor in the Department of Geosciences, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, USA, since 1984. He has been Head of the Department of Geosciences since 1993. Additionally, he is a member of Clare Hall at Cambridge.
