Time-Series Analysis and Cyclostratigraphy by Graham P. Weedon

Book Description

Increasingly environmental scientists, palaeoceanographers and geologists are collecting quantitative records of environmental changes (time-series) from sediments, ice cores, cave calcite, corals and trees. This book explains how to analyse these records, using straightforward explanations and diagrams rather than formal mathematical derivations. All the main cyclostratigraphic methods are covered including spectral analysis, cross-spectral analysis, filtering, complex demodulation, wavelet and singular spectrum analysis. Practical problems of time-series analysis, including those of distortions of environmental signals during stratigraphic encoding, are considered in detail. Recent research into various types of tidal and climatic cycles is summarised. The book ends with an extensive reference section, and an appendix listing sources of computer algorithms. This book provides the ideal reference for all those using time-series analysis to study the nature and history of climatic and tidal cycles. It is suitable for senior undergraduate and graduate courses in environmental science, palaeoceanography and geology.

Author Biography - Graham P. Weedon

Graham Weedon is Senior Lecturer in Geology at the University of Luton. His current research involves studying records of annual cycles in cave calcite, ENSO cycles in varved sediment and Milankovitch cycles in ancient deep-sea sediments. He received a D.Phil from Oxford University in 1987, and has participated in Ocean Drilling Program cruises, off Oman (1987), Brazil (1994) and New Zealand (1998). In 1999 he co-convened a Royal Society Meeting entitled 'Astronomical Calibration of the Geological Time Scale'.
