Book description

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 analyse 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, wavelet and singular spectrum analysis. Practical problems of time-series analysis, including those of distortions of environmental signals during stratigraphic encoding, are considered in detail. Recent research into various types of tidal and climatic cycles is summarised. The book ends with an extensive reference section, and an appendix listing sources of computer algorithms. This book provides the ideal reference for all those using time-series analysis to study the nature and history of climatic and tidal cycles. It is suitable for senior undergraduate and graduate courses in environmental science, palaeoceanography and geology.


'… very useful and well illustrated … well-organized and clearly written … The table of Contents allows easy search for sections cross-referenced in the text. The author has included an index at the end of the book which also makes for easy searching. … Both the author and the editors are to be commended on production of a remarkably well-edited book.'

'… I sincerely believe that the book will motivate new research in the field.'

Source: Journal of Sedimentary Research

'… an excellent textbook and good value for money. It is particularly useful for geoscientists dealing with cyclostatigraphy but lacking in a firm mathematical background, because they can also get an insight into the sophisticated mathematical basis of time-series analysis without the burdening details of equations. I would also recommend it to anyone who has future ambitions to become familiar with the mathematical treatment of time-series analysis.'

Source: Quaternary Science Reviews

'… highly recommended to anyone who uses time-series analyses to interpret cycles in sediments climatic or astronomical data sets. Its methodological synthesis of current literature on the Quaternary as well as the deeper geological record makes it a valuable resource for specialists working within this emerging research specialisation's. At the same time, the book's clear language and wide range of topical focus makes it suitable for advanced students in the Earth sciences, including those reading geology, environmental science, oceanography, palaeontology and climatology courses.'

'… a book that deserves attention by any researchers in Earth's climate history. … A time-series novice will learn enough from it to explore the technical literature. A time-series veteran will gain perspective on several controversial research topics.'
