Effect of uneven sampling along an environmental gradient on transfer-function performance
We investigate the effect that uneven sampling of the environmental gradient has on transfer-function performance using simulated community data. We find that cross-validated estimates of the root mean squared error ...
Effects of within-lake variability of fossil assemblages on quantitative chironomid-inferred temperature reconstruction
We studied the effects of within-lake variation of subfossil chironomid assemblages on chironomid-inferred temperatures in five lakes in southern Norway. In each lake six replicate surface-sediment samples in the deepest ...
The intercept is a poor estimate of a calibrated radiocarbon age
(Arnold Publishers, 2004)
Intercept-based methods of generating a point estimate of a calibrated radiocarbon date are very popular, but exhibit undesirable behaviour. They are highly sensitive to the mean of the radiocarbon date and to adjustments ...
A brief history of climate – the northern seas from the Last Glacial Maximum to global warming
The understanding of climate and climate change is fundamentally concerned with two things: a well-defined and sufficiently complete climate record to be explained, for example of observed temperature, and a relevant ...
