Memory of thousands of years
by Nitesh Sinha, Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology, Pune, India
No one know the future, that is true. However, is it true that no one knows the past of our Earth's atmosphere?
The answer is no; the memories were stored in some species, better to say proxies. The speleothem is one of the most important proxy to study the past climatic conditions.
