About this book

Originally published in Russian in 2006, this is the first English translation of this important book on paleoceanography and paleoclimatology. Its initial publication was followed by a surge of interest in this subject prompting the author to revise and translate her original work. In The Global Thermohaline Paleocirculation, she successfully summarizes her own research over recent years and compiles an overview of up-to-date knowledge on past ocean circulation.

Comprehensive investigation of hundreds of international publications and her own results, convinced the author that the global thermohaline circulation controls the remote teleconnections on millennial-scale and partly on centennial-scale, while short-term climate signals are mainly transferred by the atmosphere.

This revised and extended English edition provides the latest unpublished data, new figures and modeling results. The extensive reference list contains more than 800 publications and 140 new references.
