In this slide set, scientists travel to the far reaches of the earth to study the climate variability of the tropics and subtropics. Included in this set are color photos of the Quelccaya Ice Cap in Peru and the Dunde Ice Cap in China, in addition to a comprehensive text. Visit ice core camps, view collections of ice cores, and understand the climatic importance of these two ice caps. Many graphic representations of ice core data are included along with ice core methodology, and climatic reconstruction with annual resolution from the Andes and the Himalayas. This set would be appropriate for college level audiences and could be used as an educational tool for studying current issues in glaciology, paleoclimatology, and climate variability of the tropics and subtropics. Set also includes a glossary and further reading lists.
