Beitrag der Physik zur Klimageschichte


Investigating ancient climatic conditions requires methods to determine the age and the temperature. Libby's carbon-14 method is useful in studying sediments containing carbonates; it can be supplemented by other radioactive dating methods that cover a greater age range. Isotopic ratios of hydrogen, carbon, and oxygen are appropriate temperature indicators… (More)
