Dynamical Paleoclimatology: Generalized Theory of Global Climate Change

Dynamical Paleoclimatology: Generalized Theory of Global Climate Change Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The book discusses the ideas and creates a framework for building toward a theory of paleoclimate. Using the rich and mounting array of observational evidence of climatic changes from geology, geochemistry, and paleontology, Saltzman offers a dynamical approach to the theory of paleoclimate evolution and an expanded theory of climate.

Saltzman was a distinquished authority on dynamical meteorology. This book provides a comprehensive framework based on dynamical system ideas for a theory of climate and paleoclimatic evolution which is intended for graduate students and research workers in paleoclimatology, earth system studies, and global change research. The book includes an extensive bibliography of geological and physical/dynamical references.

Book News Annotation:

The time has come, announces Saltzman (geology and geophysics, Yale U.), to examine the myriad data that has been collected, analyzed, and interpreted and use it to construct the first draft of a formal and comprehensive theory about how the Earth's climate has varied over the eons. Though he admits that ultimately the observation side the scale will probably weigh more heavily, he emphasizes here the theoretical, in order to provide a foundation for a truly time-dependent or dynamical approach. He addresses graduate students and researchers who work with climate theory.

About the Author

Barry Saltzman was a professor of geology and geophysics at Yale University and a pioneer in the theory of weather and climate. A Fellow of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) and the AAAS, Saltzman received the 1998 Carl Gustaf Rossby Research Medal, the highest award from the AMS, for his research on how ice sheets, atmospheric winds, ocean currents, carbon dioxide concentration, and other factors work together, causing the climate to oscillate in a 100,000-year cycle.

About the Author

Barry Saltzman, 1932-2001, was professor of geology and geophysics at Yale University and a pioneer in the theory of weather and climate, in which he made several profound and lasting contributions to knowledge of the atmosphere and climate. Saltzman developed a series of models and theories of how ice sheets, atmospheric winds, ocean currents, carbon dioxide concentration, and other factors work together, causing the climate to oscillate in a 100,000-year cycle. For this and other scientific contributions, he received the 1998 Carl Gustaf Rossby Research Medal, the highest award from the American Meteorological Society. Saltzman was a fellow of the American Meteorological Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science and an honorary member of the Academy of Science of Lisbon. His work in 1962 on thermal convection led to the discovery of chaos theory and the famous "Saltzman-Lorenz attractor."
