A 2500-Year Temperature History of the Northern Tibetan Plateau

February 2014
CO2 Science;2/12/2014, Vol. 17 Issue 7, p3
The article focuses on more than two millenniums of temperature history of the Northern Tibetan Plateau. Topics discussed include the similarities in patterns that can be differentiated into warm and cold periods, the similarities presented by plateau temperature history, and the use of alkenone indices in the analysis. The correspondence of the temperature changes to solar irradiance changes is mentioned.
