The Myth of the 's Global Cooling Scientific Consensus, published by the American Meteorological Society.; Was an imminent Ice Age predicted in the '70's? by William Connelly documents all the scientific literature in the 70's on global cooling. Past Cycles: Ice Age Speculations by Spencer Weart (part of the History of Global Warming series) documents the development of ice age science.

      Skip to comments. Science Fiction stories about a future Ice Age. Posted on 12/21/ PM PST by EveningStar. Do you know of any science fiction stories about future Ice Ages? I've read one, the novel, Fallen Angels by Larry Niven, Jerry Pournelle, and Michael Flynn Wikipedia article.   Evidence for Ice Ages: There are three forms of evidence for ice age theory, which range from the geological and the chemical to the paleontological (i.e. the fossil record).

    The third reason is to fund research covering the causes of the past ice ages, geomagnetic reversals (polar reversals), mass extinction’s, and other phenomena related to the polar reversals. The objective of the research is to find a causal relationship between geological cycles and astronomical cycles within an informational theory of. And since the last ice age ended almost exac years ago “Staggering in its implications. A must-read.” Beginning with the dinosaur extinction of 65 million years ago, Not by Fire but by Ice explores the relationship between mass extinctions, ice ages, and magnetic reversals (times when compasses pointed south instead of north).

This book tells the exciting story of the ice ages―what they were like, why they occurred, and when the next one is due. The solution to the ice age mystery originated when the National Science Foundation organized the CLIMAP project to study changes in the earth’s climate over the pastby:   An ice age is a period of colder global temperatures that features recurring glacial expansion across the Earth’s surface.

State of the Climate in   Earth’s climate has undergone many changes over the course of geologic history, but the past one million years or so have been among the most dynamic. During that time, the planet has experienced repeated cycles of glacial (cold) and interglacial (warm) periods lasting ab years on average.

These were. "The Once and Future Story of Ice Ages", emphasizes the longer perspective he takes on how and why climate changes. He begins with the fact that we are likely living in an Ice ages of the past and the future book period of what has been a series of ice ages recurring at more or less regular intervals of several thousand years/5(27).

The Pleistocene Ice Age left us the amazing Great Lakes and the grand Yosemite Valley. In this book, readers will learn how Earth's orbit has influenced ice ages of the past and will impact ice ages of the future.

The way in which global warming might effect the world's climate is also discussed in compelling, scientific, and age-appropriate language. As o years have passed since the last Ice Age, scientists cannot be certain that humans are indeed living in a post-glacial Holocene epoch instead of an interglacial period of the Pleistocene and thus due for another ice age in the geologic future.

Some scientists believe that an increase in global temperature, as is now being experienced, could be a sign of an impending ice age Author: Matt Rosenberg. Kirsten Reed’s debut, The Ice Age, is a short novel (little over pages), an extended snapshot (if there can be such a thing!) of a period in its protagonist’s life – at one and the same time both satisfyingly complete and intriguingly incomplete.

Reed’s narrator is a seventeen-year-old girl (we never find out her name) who had not long been a hitch-hiker when she met Gunther, the /5.

Ice Ages: Past and Future by Jonathon S. Erickson A copy that has been read, but remains in clean condition. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. The spine may show signs of wear. Examins the causes of glaciers and ice ages, recent climate changes, and the role humans play in global warming.

There have been five or six major ice ages in the history of Earth over the past 3 billion years. The Late Cenozoic Ice Age began 34 million years ago, its latest phase being the Quaternary glaciation, in progress since million years ago.

Within ice ages, there exist periods of more severe glacial conditions and more temperate referred to as glacial periods and interglacial periods. Big ice ages account for about 25 percent of Earth's past billion years, said Michael Sandstrom, a doctoral student in paleoclimate at Columbia University in New York City.

In this engrossing and accessible book, Doug Macdougall explores the causes and effects of ice ages that have gripped our planet throughout its history, from the earliest known glaciation--nearly three billion years ago--to the present.

Following the development of scientific ideas about these dramatic events, Macdougall traces the lives of many of the brilliant and intriguing characters who /5(2). Past Climate Cycles: Ice Age Speculations To understand climate change, the obvious first step would be to explain the colossal coming and going of ice ages.

Scientists devised ingenious techniques to recover evidence from the distant past, first from deposits left on land, then also from sea floor sediments, and then still better by drilling.

We will discuss these models in some detail in this book. Much of the work of understanding lies in the future. It is a great field for a young student to enter. The ice records take us back only toyears in the past. However, oxygen isotope records in sea floor cores allow us to go further.

Past Glacial Environments, Second Edition, presents a revised and updated version of the very successful first edition of Menzies’ book, covering a breadth of topics with a focus on the recognition and analysis of former glacial environments, including the pre-Quaternary glaciations.

A number of major ice ages have occurred throughout Earth history. The earliest known took place during Precambrian time dating back more than million.Over the past million years, Earth has undergone some 50 major ice ages and each has substantially changed the planet’s climate.
