Reconstructing Earth’s Climate History

Kate Pound, professor of geology, has helped author a textbook called “Reconstructing Earth’s Climate History: Inquiry-Based Exercises for Lab and Class.”

The purpose of the book is to put key data and published case studies of past climate change at users’ fingertips to experience the nature of paleoclimate reconstruction. Using foundational geologic concepts, the book explores a wide variety of topics including: marine sediments, age determination, stable isotope paleoclimate proxies, Cenozoic climate change, climate cycles, polar climates and abrupt warming and cooling events
