PALEOCLIMATOLOGY: BOREHOLE TEMPERATURE ANALYSES
Special issue: Global
and Planetary Change, 6(2-4), Dec. 1992 (Elsevier), contains 18
papers on inferring climatic change from underground temperatures, many of which
were presented at an IASPEI meeting (Vienna, 1991). The first five concern
general application of the technique, while the rest apply to specific
Measurements in Borehole GC-1, Northwestern Utah: Towards Isolating a Climate
Change Signal in Borehole Temperature Profiles," D.S. Chapman (Dept. Geol.,
Univ. Utah, Salt Lake City UT 84112), R.N. Harris, Geophys. Res. Lett.,
20(18), 1891-1894, Sep. 15, 1993.
Repeating measurements (1978, 1990, 1992) in the same borehole is one method
of isolating climatic change from other factors that can influence local ground
Inferred from Borehole Temperatures," H.N. Pollack (Dept. Geol. Sci., Univ.
Michigan, Ann Arbor MI 48109), Global Plan. Change, 7(1-3),
173-179, May 1993.
Reviews the application of this technique, which has the potential to extend
direct observations of temperature well into the pre-industrial era,
particularly in North America. (Part of the special issue on quaternary Earth
system changes listed below.)
