Description Observations relating to quaternary environments in east and southern Africa PDF

In this remarkable book Professor Edgar Mountain of Rhodes University describes the geology of Southern Africa in such a way that both scientist and layman will find this a rich source of information and an inspiration on a vast and vital subject. In fact, the Quaternary is often considered the "Age of Humans." Homo erectus appeared in Africa at the start of the period, and as time marched on the hominid line evolved bigger brains and.

This third edition of Reconstructing Quaternary Environments has been completely revised and updated to provide a new account of the history and scale of environmental changes during the Quaternary.

The evidence is extremely diverse ranging from landforms and sediments to fossil assemblages and geochemical data, and includes new data from terrestrial, marine and ice-core records. An understanding of Quaternary environmental changes within and offshore southern Africa becomes a significant element in the reconstruction of the dynamics of this thermohaline conveyor (the return limb of which passes offshore of the subcontinent from east to west), which has been held responsible for sub-Milankovitch scale global climate Cited by: Pages in category "Quaternary Africa" The following 4 pages are in this category, out of 4 total.

Welcome to the Brown University Quaternary Environments web site that features the terrestrial component of Earth Systems History Research at nary environmental research encompasses the mapping and analysis of the vegetation and climate history in North America since the last glacial maxi years ago.

The linear dunes of the southern Kalahari dunefield constitute one of the major palaeoenvironmental proxies in the region. The application of optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dating since thes and advancements in the depth of sampling using augering equipment over the past few years have permitted the reconstruction of linear dune accumulation chronostratigraphies for.

A key reference for researchers studying hominid evolution, geoarchaeology and environmental change, it provides a benchmark study of southern African landscape evolution during the Quaternary. It will also appeal to professionals and policymakers with interests in future human-landscape evolution in southern Africa.

The final chapter of the book addresses landscape evolution in different cultural periods. This book offers an integrated approach to geoecological knowledge that is valuable to students and professionals in quaternary science, physical geography, soil science, archaeology, historical geography, and land planning and restructuring.

Quaternary - Quaternary - Quaternary life: The length of the Quaternary is short relative to geologic and evolutionary time scales, but the rate of evolutionary change during this period is high. It is a basic tenet of ecology that disturbance increases diversity and ultimately leads to evolutionary pressures.
