Record #185632:

Peut-on prévoir la ou les prochaines glaciations? / Michel Brochu.

Title: Peut-on prévoir la ou les prochaines glaciations? / Michel Brochu.
Translated title: Can we foresee the next glaciations?.
Author(s): Brochu, Michel.
Date: 2008.
Language: French.
In: Polo, Il. (2008.), Vol. 63(2) (2008)
Abstract: Notes that many authors have addressed causes of ice ages, whereas few have addressed prediction of future glaciations. Focusing on what author sees as plausible major factor in ice age onset, examines possibility of predicting global reduction in solar heating of earth surface as result of volcanic products entering atmosphere. Argues that current knowledge does not allow such events to be predicted, and that since coincidence with additional causal factors (changes in solar activity, e.g.) may be required, prediction of next phase of glaciation is not currently feasible. As example of major natural event with more than one coincident causal factor, briefly examines coincidence of high tide and storm surge that led to flooding in Netherlands in 1953.
