How can we learn about climate variability over the span of hundreds and thousands of years?
What techniques have scientists developed to study past climate variability when records from instruments are not available?
How do tree rings, ice cores taken from ice caps, coral reefs and even the nests of packrats reveal important information about past climate patterns?
The following series
of slidesets provide background on a variety of paleoclimatology subjects,
including Ice Ages, Tree Rings, Ice Cores, Coral Reefs and much more.
