Interhemispheric Climate Linkages presents a comparative analysis of across-hemisphere linkages of climate and their effects on human societies, thus providing a framework for the study of global change. This authoritative volume takes a spatially integrated view of climate variability and climate change on seasonal to millennial time scales, based on instrumental and climate proxy records from the Americas. Individual chapters address the interannual to multidecadal interhemispheric symmetry of climate patterns related to variability in the El Niño/Southern Oscillation, the Pacific and North Atlantic Oscillation, polar air outbreaks, and other climatic events. Features• First volume to provide an interdisciplinary framework for investigating interhemispheric climate linkages, past and present.• New methodologies for global-scale integration of climate and climate proxy records-a new approach to the integration of global information.• Integrated view of present and past interhemispheric climate linkage mechanisms• Numerous examples of the effects of environmental change on ancient human societies.
