Past climates of Central Africa: an inaugural lecture given in the University College of Rhodesia and Nyasaland
MetadataShow full item record
Palaeoclimatology is a controversial subject, although fewer people argue about it than over many other aspects of geology. Data on past climates are always second order, since they depend on interpretations of field observations. There should be no argument about the field facts, since these are mainly direct observation on the rocks themselves, but deductions on climate from these facts are particularly susceptible to challenge.
