Abstract:

Results of research conducted by ARPABrown scientists from 14 August, 1973 to 15 June, 1974 are discussed. Topics covered include 1 organization of a transfer function conference sponsored by ARPA and CLIMAP 2 identification of methods to improve paleoclimatic estimates derived from transfer functions 3 improved coverage of modern pollen data from eastern and central North America 4 development of a new uplift model for reef terrace sequences 5 mapping pollen data at 1000 year time-intervals during the Holocene 6 identification of high-deposition rate cores in the Mediterranean and off Cape Hatteras 7 significant phase differences occurring in the response times of various parts of the air-sea-ice system during a glacial- interglacial cycle and 8 completion of the first experiment to test numerical climatic models against synoptic paleoclimatic data.
