Kurzbeschreibung

The context for understanding global climate change today liesin the records of Earth's past. This is demonstrated bydecades of paleoclimate research by scientists in organizationssuch as the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP), the AntarcticGeological Drilling Program (ANDRILL), and many others.
The purpose of this full colour textbook is to put key data andpublished case studies of past climate change at your fingertips,so that you can experience the nature of paleoclimatereconstruction.
Using foundational geologic concepts, students explore awide variety of topics, including: marine sediments, agedetermination, stable isotope paleoclimate proxies, Cenozoicclimate change, climate cycles, polar climates, and abrupt warmingand cooling events, students are invited to evaluate publishedscientific data, practice developing and testing hypotheses, andinfer the broader implications of scientific results.
It is our philosophy that addressing how we know is asimportant as addressing what we know about past climatechange. Making climate change science accessible is the goal ofthis book.
This book is intended for earth science students at a variety oflevels studying paleoclimatology, oceanography, Quaternary science,or earth-system science.

Dr. Kristen St. John is a Professor of Geology at JamesMadison University in Harrisonburg, VA. St. John is a marinesedimentologist, specializing in high latitude paleoclimate recordsand reconstructing ice-rafting histories. She has participated infour scientific ocean drilling expeditions with the ODP/IODP. Herteaching responsibilities include: Earth Systems and ClimateChange, Oceanography for Teachers, Earth Science for Teachers,Geowriting and Communication, Paleoclimatology, and PhysicalGeology.
Dr. R. Mark Leckie is a Professor of Geology at theUniversity of Massachusetts-Amherst. Leckie is a marinemicropaleontologist and specializes in paleoceanography,particularly reconstructing ocean-climate history of the past 120million years. He has participated in six DSDP/ODP scientificexpeditions, and served as Co-Chief Scientist of ODP Leg 165. Histeaching responsibilities include: Introductory Oceanography;History of the Earth; Introductory Field Methods; Paleoceanography;and Marine Micropaleontology.
Dr. Kate Pound is a Professor of Geology, and a member ofthe Science Education Group at St. Cloud State University. Poundleads hands-on education and outreach programs for teachers inMinnesota, and was a science educator in the ANDRILL program inAntarctica. Her research focuses on provenance studies and regionaltectonics. Her teaching responsibilities include: Physical Geology,Glacial Geology, Field Geology, Rocks & Minerals,Sedimentology, General Education Geology courses, and Science forElementary Teachers.
Dr. Megan Jones is a Professor of Geology at NorthHennepin Community College, a diverse, open-access institution.Jones' broad background and experience in marinemicropaleontology/paleoceanography, sed/strat and field geologyoffers her students options to pursue field experiences andundergraduate research. Her research interest focuses on theconnections between student motivation and success in introductoryscience courses. Her teaching responsibilities include: Physicaland Historical Geology, Oceanography, and Minnesota FieldGeology.
Dr. Lawrence Krissek is a Professor in the School ofEarth Sciences, Ohio State University. His primary scientificresearch is the study of the evolution of climates and oceanenvironments on the earth during the past 65 million years. He hasconducted field research in the Antarctic, and has sailed onnumerous DSDP, ODP, and IODP cruises. He teaches Oceanography,Oceanography for Educators, Field Geology for Educators, NaturalHazards, Physical Geology, Historical Geology, and Stratigraphy andSedimentation.
