about

Increasingly, environmental scientists, palaeoceanographers and geologists are collecting quantitative records of environmental changes (time series) from sediments, ice cores, cave calcite, corals and trees. This book explains how to analyze these records, using straightforward explanations and diagrams rather than formal mathematical derivations. All the main cyclostratigraphic methods are covered, including spectral analysis, cross-spectral analysis, filtering, complex demodulation, and wavelet and singular spectrum analysis. Practical problems of time-series analysis are considered in detail. Recent research into various types of tidal and climatic cycles is summarized.
Graham Weedon is Senior Lecturer in Geology at the University of Luton. His current research involves studying records of annual cycles in cave calcite, ENSO cycles in varved sediment and Milankovitch cycles in ancient deep-sea sediments. He received a D.Phil from Oxford University in 1987, and has participated in Ocean Drilling Progra...
