Global Climate Change: A Glance in the Rear View Mirror
http://www.agiweb.org/geotimes/dec01/feature_proxies.html

Matt Huber, Geotimes


This Geotimes article provides information regarding the inference of paleoclimate (global climate change) from proxy data such as ice core (oxygen isotope) records and biota found in deep sea sediments. The article discusses the history of proxy usage, the basis of current proxies, and gaps in our understanding of carbon/material cycling and climate records.
