The scientific celebrities, forgetting their mollusks and glacial periods
, gossiped about art, while devoting themselves to oysters and ices with characteristic energy; the young musician, who was charming the city like a second Orpheus, talked horses; and the specimen of the British nobility present happened to be the most ordinary man of the party.
The debate is full of dispute and controversy; however whether a new glacial period
is likely in 10 years or 100,000 years there is no-one who will say that there will never be another huge freeze again.
This was the case during the last glacial period
around 100,000 to 20,000 years ago.
Earth's most recent glacial period
began about 110,000 years ago and ended about 15,000 years ago, and over the past million years Earth's glacial-interglacial cycle has consistently alternated phases approximately every 100,000 years.
Many of these species, known as glacial relicts, survived the warming climate at the end of the last glacial period
in fragmented populations restricted to interglacial refugia with characteristic arcto-alpine disjunct ranges (Bhagwat & Willis 2008).
As Southeast Asia's jungles gave way to expanding grasslands during the last glacial period
, Gigantopithecus may have been unable to cope.
Objective : Little has challenged our understanding of climate change more so than the abruptness with which large-scale shifts in temperature occurred during the last glacial period
But Roxanne El-Hady broke the mould by spending her time reconstructing rapid climate change in South Wales at the end of the last glacial period
- and then winning the 2016 Young Scientist of the Year prize.
In Glacial Period
, we find a group of archaeologists in an ice-age thousands of years in the future led by a talking, genetically modified dog/pig bred for its sense of smell of history.
Bureau of Land Management is preparing to reopen a metal grate over the opening to offer scientists what may be their best look yet at the variety of critters that roamed the foothills of the Bighorn Mountains during the planet's last glacial period
around 25,000 years ago.
Also in southwestern Ecuadorian Andes (3700 m elevation), studies indicate for the late Glacial period
(17 000-11 000 cal yr BP), a herb paramo surrounded the area, reflecting colder and moister climatic conditions (Hansen et al.
A delightful thought but 12,000 years away from the reality and the last glacial period
