By Harunur Rashid, Leonid Polyak, Ellen Mosley-Thompson

Released through the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph sequence, quantity 193.

Abrupt weather switch: Mechanisms, styles, and Impacts
brings jointly a various staff of paleoproxy documents comparable to ice cores, marine sediments, terrestrial (lakes and speleothems) information, and matched ocean-atmosphere weather versions to record fresh advances in realizing the mechanisms of abrupt weather adjustments. because the discovery of the Dansgaard-Oeschger occasions in Greenland ice cores and the following 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 consequently, the variety of paleoclimatic files chronicling such occasions has elevated. the quantity highlights comprise discussions of files of previous weather variability, meridional overturning circulate, land-ocean-atmosphere interactions, feedbacks within the weather procedure, and international temperature anomalies. Abrupt weather Change can be of curiosity to scholars, researchers, teachers, and coverage makers who're concerned with abrupt weather switch and its capability impression on society.
