The best method so far devised for testing the ability of a general circulation model (GCM) to simulate climates very different from today is to conduct 'snapshot' experiments for specific times in the past at which the climatic forcing can be prescribed in detail. This paper focuses on the...
Exposures in blanket mire deposits in the Galloway Hills, southwest Scotland, have revealed the presence of minerogenic layers within the peat stratigraphy. These deposits are studied by a variety of methods with a view to the investigation of ecological influences upon deposition, the timing of...
The sensitivity of the mass balance of the Greenland ice sheet to climate change is studied with an energy-balance model of the ice/snow surface, applied at 200 m elevation intervals for four characteristic regions of the ice sheet. Solar radiation, longwave radiation, turbulent heat fluxes and...
Pollen, chemical and magnetic analysis of a 6 m core from the Petit Lac d'Annecy provides a record of land use change and soil erosion spanning the last 2000 years. Variations in the magnetic properties of the sediments, especially above 3 m in the core, can be linked to the history of soil...
The evidence for enhanced erosion in upland Britain during the Late Holocene is evaluated. Though there is widespread evidence for recent soil erosion on high plateaux, this has not been precisely dated. Radiocarbon dating confirms the occurrence of Late Holocene solifluction on high ground, but...
Pioneer studies of peat stratigraphy in Scandinavia led to division of the Holocene into climatic periods, and though this scheme was later re-evaluated and partly rejected, studies in Denmark and England have demonstrated a link between the stratigraphy of lowland raised mires and past climatic...
