  • paleoclimatologist look for clues in earth natural environment records.clues about past climate are buried in glaciers and ice caps.
  • how geologists find out about past climates?
  • What are Milankovitch Cycles? Natural global warming, and cooling, is considered to be initiated by Milankovitch cycles. These orbital and axial variations influence the initiation of climate change in long-term natural cycles of 'ice ages' and 'warm periods' known as 'glacial' and 'interglacial' periods. Our current climate forcing shows we are outside of that natural cycle forcing range.
  • Volcanic activity ranges from emission of gases, non-explosive lava emissions to extremely violent explosive bursts that may last many hours. ... A volcanic event occurs when there is a sudden or continuing release of energy caused by near-surface or surface magma movement.
  • Ocean currents impact both climate and weather patterns. Warm ocean currents bring warm air masses to wherever they flow, which leads to warm and moist weather. Cold ocean currents carry cold and dry air, which brings cool and dry weather.
