Maar lake sediments reveal a grand solar minimum and the climate response recorded for the first time in the same climate archive highlights the need for a more differentiated approach to solar radiation.
A growing research field is "global dimming" and "global brightening" of solar radiation. These phenomena, supposedly human-induced, control solar radiation incident at the Earth's surface and thus influence climate.... Read Post
Climate signals locked in the layers of glacial ice, preserved in the annual growth rings of trees, or fingerprinted in other so-called proxy archives such as lake sediments, speleothems, and corals allow researchers to quantify cli... Read Post
One of the oldest lakes in the world, Clear Lake in northern California has deep sediments that contain a record of the climate and local plants and animals going back perhaps 500,000 years. Scientists are drilling cores from the se... Read Post
