Pre-Mesozoic ice ages: their bearing on understanding the climate system / John C. Crowell.

Title: Pre-Mesozoic ice ages: their bearing on understanding the climate system / John C. Crowell.
Author(s): Crowell, John C.
Date: 1999.
Publisher: Boulder, CO: Geological Society of America
Abstract: Reviews iciness on Earth, working back from present. Discusses pre-Mesozoic glaciations identified from glacial debris preserved within stratal records, rare glacial pavements and landforms, and geochemical proxies for climate coolness. Sections cover: recognition and preservation of ancient glacial records; ice ages of Late Palaeozoic (including Antarctica part of Gondwana), Late Devonian-Early Carboniferous, Late Proterozoic (including Greenland and Antarctica), Early Proterozoic, and Archean of South Africa; and discussion of causes of climatic variations. Concludes that ice age record through 3 billion years of Earth history reveals climate largely produced by tectonobiogeochemical interplays within complex crustal, oceanic and atmospheric systems, moderated by orbital variations and occasionally interrupted by bolide impacts.
