Inquiry into High Resolution Ice Core and Marine Sediment Records: Archives of Suborbital (Millennial) Oscillations in Climate

Kristen St. John, Mark Leckie, Joint Oceanographic Institutions; The School of Rock Expedition

This Joint Oceanographic Institutions activity (PDF) provides questions related to interpreting paleoclimate (climate in the past) data. Questions inquire about characteristics that make sites favorable for paleoclimate records, locating sites using a map, finding patterns and correlations in the data, and implications for these records. Figures are provided to answer the questions and are from various sources that, in most cases, are hyperlinked to the original source.
