Abrupt Climate Change. Mechanisms, Patterns, and Impacts by Harunur Rashid, Leonid Polyak, Ellen Mosley-Thompson

By Harunur Rashid, Leonid Polyak, Ellen Mosley-Thompson

Published by means of the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph Series.Abrupt weather swap: Mechanisms, styles, and Impacts brings jointly a various team of paleoproxy documents reminiscent of ice cores, marine sediments, terrestrial (lakes and speleothems) records, and paired ocean-atmosphere weather types to record contemporary advances in knowing the mechanisms of abrupt weather adjustments. because the discovery of the Dansgaard-Oeschger occasions in Greenland ice cores and the next discovery in their modern occasions within the marine sediments of the North Atlantic, the quest for those abrupt, millennial-scale occasions around the globe has intensified, and hence, the variety of paleoclimatic documents chronicling such occasions has elevated. the amount highlights comprise discussions of documents of previous weather variability, meridional overturning...

Biological Oceanography Research Trends

Organic oceanography matters the biology and ecology of oceanic, marine, coastal and estuarine organisms. those variety from viruses and micro organism to microbes and phytoplankton, from zooplankton and benthic invertebrates to shellfish, fish and marine mammals. The organisms stay in a dynamic fluid simply defined as a chemical soup that covers seventy one percentage of the earth's floor and is in detail coupled to the ambience, the seafloor and the land.
