Andy May is a writer, blogger and author living in The Woodlands, Texas. He enjoys golf and traveling in his spare time. He is also an editor for the popular climate change blog , where he has published numerous posts and is the author or co-author of seven peer-reviewed papers on various geological, engineering and petrophysical topics. The book ranges the period of time from Peking man to the epoch of Mao Tse-tung. It moves through the ancient and modern dynasties, the warlords and conquests, earthquakes, devastating floods, climatic reversals, and staggering civil wars to the impact of Western civilization and s: 2.
Historical climatology is the study of historical changes in climate and their effect on civilization from the emergence of hominins to the present day. This differs from paleoclimatology which encompasses climate change over the entire history of historical impacts of climate change can improve human life and cause societies to flourish, or can be instrumental in civilization's. In Parker’s book, we see historical records of unusually cold and devastating winters that occurred in Europe and the Middle East in , the United States between and , China in , Hungary between and remains the coldest year ever in Scandinavia. In the Balkans, in , wine and olive oil froze in jars.
Some historical weather records of China in the governmental archives are discussed. The records in the pre-Qing period (before ) am briefly summarized and their use for the reconstruction of. By Andy May. In the last post (see here) we introduced a new Holocene temperature reconstruction for Antarctica using some of the Marcott, et al. () proxies. In this post, we will present two more reconstructions, one for the Southern Hemisphere mid-latitudes (60°S to 30°S) and another for the tropics (30°S to 30°N).

GE, J.-Y. ZHENG, Z.-X. HAO, P.-Y. ZHANG, AND W.-C. WANG Chinese historical documents contain abundant descriptions of weather conditions that can be used to reconstruct the climate over hundreds and perhaps thousands of years—File Size: KB.
In recent years, researchers studying historical climates have given an increasing amount of attention to the Yu‐Xue‐Fen‐Cun record of the Qing Dynasty of China. These records play an important role in the quantitative reconstruction of the climate from the past years in China due to their uniform recording formats and measurement Cited by: 1.
Abstract. This chapter reviews the historical climatology of China, with emphasis on records from the Ming (– ce) and Qing (– ce) ’s historical climatology draws on documentary sources, including classical literature and chronicles, local gazettes, and central imperial by: 1.
Two years with extreme summer precipitation are identified— mm in and mm in ; the latter is larger than the mm inwhich has been the most severe one of recent decades. The long-term high-resolution quantitative data can be used to study climate variability as well as to evaluate historical climate model by: Coherence of climatic reconstruction from historical documents in China by different studies Article in International Journal of Climatology 28(8) - June with 88 Reads.
The historical records have been utilized in various studies previously, especially in historical climatology and paleoecology for retrieving important.
China’s Mu Us Desert is located at the northwest edge of the East Asian monsoon region and the junction of arid and semi-arid areas of the Eurasian continent (Liu, ; Fig. 1).This area is a crucial agro-pastoral transition zone at the middle reaches of the Yellow River, with pronounced fluctuations in population and land use types during its history ().
The Book of Documents (Shūjīng, earlier Shu-king) or Classic of History, also known as the Shangshu ("Esteemed Documents"), is one of the Five Classics of ancient Chinese is a collection of rhetorical prose attributed to figures of ancient China, and served as the foundation of Chinese political philosophy for over 2, years.
The Book of Documents was the subject of one of. Recent advances on reconstruction of climate and extreme events in China for the past years methodology for the study of climate change in historical times was developed (Gong et al., ).
Several key characteristics of Chinese climate change during historical times were. China is rising and its leaders vow this rise will be peaceful. A shared history can be a motivating force, binding citizens together. “Some leaders, though, selectively use historical memories to serve political and strategic objectives,” explains Suisheng Zhao, professor and director of the Center for China-US Cooperation at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies, University of.
China's Climate. China's climate is divided into six categories as follows: tropical, subtropical, warm-temperate, temperate, cold-temperate, and Qinghai-Tibet Plateau temperate of the country lies in the northern temperate zone, which is characterized by warm climate and well-defined seasons, being suitable for habitation.
In this article, the author reviews a number of recent publications by scientists and historians. Those publications, drawing on the latest scientific findings about climatic change in ancient China, suggest that the fall of the Tang and Ming dynasties may have been caused by global cooling.
But the fall of a dynasty is a hugely complicated event. Lacking an adequate understanding of the. Remarkable advances in climate modeling and reconstruction also allow us to discuss climate in history with unprecedented precision and confidence.
Studies using proxy data (such as tree rings and ice cores), phenology (such as the dates of harvests), and written records (such as journals and ship logs) have multiplied exponentially.
Why is it important to reconstruct the long history of the Earth's climate, and how can we do that. structed with historical documents as well as natural evi-dence, and furthermore, to illustrate the quality of climate reconstruction using Chinese historical documents.
The study has taken following steps. Firstly, the relationship between the different climatic series reconstructed by dif-ferent studies using Chinese historical documents is. In order to understand how climate may vary in the future--whether as a result of human activities or of natural fluctuations--we must first understand how and why it has varied in the past.
The period since A.D. is of particular interest, encompassing as it did not only the 'Little Ice Age', but also unusual solar activity and several exceptionally large explosive volcanic eruptions. This book will inform both the average reader and the academic about the rise of China, and above all, its identity reconstruction., Journal of Chinese Political Science Stimulating and elegant.

“Although his log entries do not speak of America per se, a chart created by Admiral Zheng was used to make a detailed map of the world. A copy of this map, drawn inwas found in a second-hand bookshop and was offered as evidence that Zheng’s fleet was the first to discover America.
The context for understanding global climate change today lies in the records of Earth’s past. This is demonstrated by decades of paleoclimate research by scientists in organizations such as the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP), the Antarctic Geological Drilling Program (ANDRILL), and .In this internationally acclaimed book, Emeritus Professor Hubert Lamb examines what we know about climate, how the past record of climate can be reconstructed, the causes of climatic variation, and its impact on human affairs now and in the historical and prehistoric past.
