These image-rich lecture notes from the Department of Geology at Bryn Mawr College offer information regarding climate change and how paleoclimate (past climate) is inferred using proxies. The notes, in slide form, discuss what affects climate and how climate has changed through time. The notes feature colorful photos, figures, and graphs to illustrate points. Topics discussed include extraterrestrial, short, and long term influences on climate, climate records through time (e.g. as influenced by carbon dioxide and Milankovich cycling), and future predictions/ramifications of climate change.
