This site, hosted by the University of Wisconsin, is the first in a series of connected pages that discuss the methods scientists use to explore past climate. Informational sections (linked) include how Earth temperature is monitored, computer-based climate models, interpreting past climate from ice cores and lake sediments, how archeology relates to climate change, and how tree rings can help us interpret past climate.
