To understand climate change today, we first need to know how Earths climate changed over the past 450 million years. Finding answers depends upon contributions from a wide range of sciences, not just the rock record uncovered by geologists. In Earths Climate Evolution, Colin Summerhayes analyzes reports and records of past climate change dating back to the late 18th century to uncover key. climate. The Earth provides our best-observed example of a planetary climate, and so it is inevitable that any discussion of planetary climate will draw heavily on things that can be 978-0-521-86556-2 - Principles of Planetary Climate Raymond T.

Apr 09, 2018 · A climate forcing is an imposed change of Earth's energy balance, as may be caused, for example, by a change of the sun's brightness or a human-made change of atmospheric CO 2. For convenience scientists often consider a standard forcing, doubled atmospheric CO 2, because that is a level of forcing that humans will impose this century if.
