Topics similar to or like Ice age

Long period of reduction in the temperature of the Earth's surface and atmosphere, resulting in the presence or expansion of continental and polar ice sheets and alpine glaciers. Wikipedia

  • Ice core

    Core sample that is typically removed from an ice sheet or a high mountain glacier. Ice core contains ice formed over a range of years. Wikipedia

  • Climate variability and change

    Climate variability includes all the variations in the climate that last longer than individual weather events, whereas the term climate change only refers to those variations that persist for a longer period of time, typically decades or more. In the time since the industrial revolution, the climate has increasingly been affected by human activities that are causing global warming and climate change. Wikipedia

  • Deglaciation

    Deglaciation describes the transition from full glacial conditions during ice ages, to warm interglacials, characterized by global warming and sea level rise due to change in continental ice volume. Ice sheet or frozen surface layer, and the resulting exposure of the Earth's surface. Wikipedia

  • Ice sheet

    Ice sheet, also known as a continental glacier, is a mass of glacial ice that covers surrounding terrain and is greater than 50000 km2. The only current ice sheets are in Antarctica and Greenland; during the last glacial period at Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) the Laurentide Ice Sheet covered much of North America, the Weichselian ice sheet covered northern Europe and the Patagonian Ice Sheet covered southern South America. Wikipedia

  • Glacial period

    Interval of time (thousands of years) within an ice age that is marked by colder temperatures and glacier advances. Interglacials, on the other hand, are periods of warmer climate between glacial periods. Wikipedia

  • Quaternary glaciation

    Alternating series of glacial and interglacial periods during the Quaternary period that began 2.58 Ma , and is ongoing. Usually associated with just the most recent glacial period during the Pleistocene. Wikipedia
