Published by way of the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph Series.Abrupt weather switch: Mechanisms, styles, and Impacts brings jointly a various workforce of paleoproxy files comparable to ice cores, marine sediments, terrestrial (lakes and speleothems) documents, and matched ocean-atmosphere weather types to rfile fresh advances in figuring out the mechanisms of abrupt weather alterations. because the discovery of the Dansgaard-Oeschger occasions in Greenland ice cores and the next discovery in their modern occasions within the marine sediments of the North Atlantic, the hunt for those abrupt, millennial-scale occasions around the globe has intensified, and for that reason, the variety of paleoclimatic files chronicling such occasions has elevated. the quantity highlights comprise discussions of files of earlier weather variability, meridional overturning...

A useful reference, "Encyclopedia of Marine technology" explores the significant parts and problems with this center technology self-discipline in additional than six hundred entries, 20 essays, and greater than 2 hundred black-and-white pictures and line illustrations. This finished new encyclopedia brings jointly details on marine technological know-how from its part and associate sciences, in addition to info on know-how, trade, company, society, heritage, and extra.

Wind Stress over the Ocean

Parameterization of the wind stress--drag--over the sea is critical to many points of air-sea interplay, which in flip is key for types of climate prediction and weather modeling. Wind pressure over the sea brings jointly thirty of the world's top specialists in air-sea interplay, lower than the auspices of the medical Committee on Oceanic learn.

Small Islands: Marine Science and Sustainable Development

Concerning the ProductPublished by way of the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Coastal and Estuarine reports sequence. Small tropical and subtropical islands are quite attuned to the results of the encompassing ocean and surroundings. often, those islands are densely populated and depend on the ocean for sustenance and financial viability.

Origin and Formation of Coastal Boulder Deposits at Galway Bay and the Aran Islands, Western Ireland

This booklet provides geomorphological and sedimentological features of Holocene boulder ridges alongside the sea coast of western eire (the Aran Islands and Galway Bay). Given those boulders’ measurement, volume and altitude, they're one of the so much excellent deposits moved by way of marine forces around the world and feature challenged researchers to unravel their enigmatic heritage.

Applegate and Alley demonstrate their points using beryllium-10 exposure dates from two “not so primed” moraines of inner Titcomb Lakes (Wind River Range, Wyoming, United States) and Waiho Loop of New Zealand. The sampling strategies prescribed may help in minimizing problems with defining true age of the moraines. The chapter includes a guide for determining the minimum number of samples that must be collected to answer a particular paleoclimate question. , 2009] (Figure 3), coined the “Mystery Interval” by Denton et al.
