A new Studies in Geology publication that
tackles the timely subject of global climate change has been released
by AAPG - and will be available at a special sale price for a limited
Geological Perspectives of Global Climate Change,
edited by Lee C. Gerhard, William E. Harrison and the late Bernold
M. “Bruno” Hanson, is a scientific approach to a topic that is stirring
The introductory sections address the major and minor
physical controls, or drivers, that affect earth’s climate. Several
chapters describe the naturally occurring range of variation of
climatic conditions and illustrate past changes in global temperatures.
Additional topics include:
- Case studies that show how ancient temperature conditions are
- New techniques that have significant potential as proxies for
- Several chapters that demonstrate the magnitude and length
of duration of numerous temperature variations that have occurred
during geologic time periods.
Although many of the studies are oriented toward
geoscientists, the book likely will be of interest also to life,
earth and atmospheric scientists; educators; research workers; and
policymakers seeking access to a broad range of paleoclimatic studies.
A special pre-publication sale will be held through
April 15, when the book will be offered for $69 in hard bound and
$39 in soft bound. After the sale, the book’s price will be $79
for hard and $49 for soft.
