Paleoclimatology is the study of past climates. Scientists use imprints created during past climates, known as proxies, to interpret paleoclimate. Microbial life, such as diatoms, forams and coral. serve as useful climate proxies. Other proxies include ice cores, tree rings, and sediment cores (which include diatoms, foraminifera, microbiota, pollen, and charcoal within the sediment and the sediment itself). Past climate can be reconstructed using a combination of different types of proxy records. These records can then be integrated with observations of Earth's modern climate and placed into a computer model to infer past climates as well as predict future climates.

This volume is a combination of up-to-date reviews summarising the state of the art, with presentations of new, cutting-edge science (data and interpretations as well as methodological developments) to form a major reference work that constitutes a durable benchmark in the science of Ostracoda and Quaternary climate change.

  • In-depth and focused treatment of palaeoclimate applications
  • Provides durable benchmark and guide for all future work on ostracods
  • Presents new, cutting-edge science
