– Abstract. Paleoclimatology is the study of climate prior to the period of instrumental measurements. Instrumental records span only a tiny fraction ( First, there is strong evidence from paleoclimate records from within and around these glaciers for two widespread and spatially coherent abrupt events during the Holocene: a major isotopic Topics addressed include climate change impacts on water qualities of freshwater bodies, such as glaciers, lakes, rivers and precipitation.

These alterations of the climate system are due in large part to human actions, namely the emission of greenhouse gasses.

Miller, in Developments in Earth Surface Processes, Evolution of Thought. Gilbert () argued that records of closed-basin lakes serve as paleoclimate proxies by establishing that historical Great Salt Lake levels changed as a function of river discharge to the lake.

He reasoned that the rise and fall of Lake Bonneville similarly reflected increased discharge followed by
