By Professor Reinhard Pienitz, Marianne S. V. Douglas, John P. Smol (auth.), John P. Smol, Professor Reinhard Pienitz, Associate Professor Marianne S. V. Douglas (eds.)

Concerns in regards to the results of world weather swap have centred cognizance at the vulnerability of circumpolar areas. long term old information are had to larger comprehend the value and path of environmental swap on the topic of either usual and anthropogenic motives, in addition to to evaluate styles of traditional variability. The paucity of instrumental facts calls for that proxy tools be used. The abundance of lakes during the Arctic and Antarctic makes paleolimnological techniques particularly robust instruments to help interpretations of environmental swap.

This publication presents a synthesis of the huge spectrum of thoughts on hand for producing long term environmental documents from circumpolar lakes. It additionally offers overviews of the geographic volume of paleolimnological paintings accomplished to this point in those areas. It explores the various ways that paleolimnology is used to handle the urgent and rising environmental problems with high-latitude areas. by means of delivering either an advent and in-depth reports, this quantity is of curiosity to scholars and complicated researchers alike who're learning earth, atmospheric and environmental sciences.
