Record #174560:

The ice man cometh / Fred Pearce.

Title: The ice man cometh / Fred Pearce.
Author(s): Pearce, Fred.
Date: 2005.
In: New Scientist. (2005.), Vol. 188(2527) (2005)
Abstract: Interview with Lonnie Thompson, pioneer in study of climate records from tropical glaciers. Recounts early polar work, switch to tropical glaciers and early field experiences on Quelccaya ice cap with John Mercer. Discusses climatic information retrieved from Quelccaya and other high altitude tropical glaciers, why tropical glaciers formed later at sites further north and role of orbital precession in this. Discusses Thompson's view that Earth's climate is driven from tropics, rather than polar regions, impact of climate change on glaciers and evidence revealed by retreating glaciers about their earlier rapid advances. Reports plans to visit other remote icefields and views on what else might be discovered from existing ice cores.
