Description - Interpreting Pre-Quaternary Climate from the Geologic Record by Judith Totman Parrish

Within the geological science of palaeoclimatology, the earth's pre-Quaternary period - more than two million years ago - has been studied systematically since the 1960s, when geologists started to think seriously about the concept that the continents have changed position on the earth's surface. The study of pre-Quaternary palaeoclimatology has expanded greatly. A variety of methods have been developed to study pre-Quaternary climates. This text offers a sustained exploration of the methods that are the foundation of any interpretation of earth processes. Focusing primarily on the description and analysis of palaeoclimate indicators - signals of a particular climate - this work offers detailed explanations of biotic and lithological indicators in the marine and terrestrial realms and includes case histories of palaeoclimatic studies.
