Climate and carbon cycle trends of the past 50 million years reconciled — ScienceDaily

Predictions of future climate change require a clear and nuanced understanding of Earth’s past climate. In a study published today in Science Advances, University of Hawai’i (UH) at Manoa oceanographers fully reconciled climate and carbon cycle trends of the past 50 million years — solving a controversy debated in the scientific literature for decades. Throughout […]
