The calculations prepared by Mainz scientists will also influence the way current climate change is perceived

Tree ring and oxygen isotope data from the U.S. Pacific Northwest do not provide the same information on past precipitation, but rather than causing a problem, the differing results are a good thing.

Greenland Ice Not A Reliable Model For Younger Dryas Period
2012-06-27 10:08:54

Ice samples that profile Greenland glaciers have long been used to give climate scientists historical temperature data, but those samples could be misleading.

Ancient Antarctica Was A Completely Different Place
2012-06-18 04:13:26

A new university-led study with NASA participation finds ancient Antarctica was much warmer and wetter than previously suspected. The climate was suitable to support substantial vegetation -- including stunted trees -- along the edges of the frozen continent.

Ocean’s Circulation And Its Effects On Our Climate
2012-06-07 10:47:45

Paleoclimate researchers have studied ancient skeletons from microscopic plankton from the Miocene period to better understand our climate 12 to 5 million years ago.

Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh have joined an international group of scientists to study past climate changes in the Arctic. Comprising geologists from Pitt’s Department of Geology and Planetary Science, the team has analyzed sedimentary and geochemical records of water-level changes in Rantin Lake, located in the boreal forest of Canada’s southeastern Yukon Territory.

A team of Spanish researchers have used different geological samples, extracted from the Enol lake in Asturias, to show that the Holocene, a period that started 11,600 years ago, did not have a climate as stable as was believed.

Image 1 - Paleoclimate Record Points Toward Potential Rapid Climate Changes
2011-12-10 04:29:55

New research into the Earth's paleoclimate history by NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies director James E. Hansen suggests the potential for rapid climate changes this century, including multiple meters of sea level rise, if global warming is not abated.
