Time-Series Analysis and Cyclostratigraphy

Examining Stratigraphic Records of Environmental Cycles

Time-Series Analysis and Cyclostratigraphy

Increasingly, environmental scientists, palaeoceanographers and geologists are collecting quantitative records of environmental changes (time series) from sediments, ice cores, cave calcite, corals and trees. This book explains how to analyze these records, using straightforward explanations and diagrams rather than formal mathematical derivations. All the main cyclostratigraphic methods are covered, including spectral analysis, cross-spectral analysis, filtering, complex demodulation, and wavelet and singular spectrum analysis. Practical problems of time-series analysis are considered in detail. Recent research into various types of tidal and climatic cycles is summarized.


 Reviews:

"An important book for any library with significant investments in geological or other paleoclimactic literature. Highly recommended." Choice

'… highly recommended to goescientists interested in time series analysis.' Computers and Geosciences

'… I sincerely believe that the book will motivate new research in the field.' Journal of Sedimentary Research

'… an excellent textbook and good value for money. It is particularly useful for geoscientists dealing with cyclostatigraphy but lacking in a firm mathematical background, because they can also get an insight into the sophisticated mathematical basis of time-series analysis without the burdening details of equations. I would also recommend it to anyone who has future ambitions to become familiar with the mathematical treatment of time-series analysis.' Quaternary Science Reviews

'… highly recommended to anyone who uses time-series analyses to interpret cycles in sediments climatic or astronomical data sets. Its methodological synthesis of current literature on the Quaternary as well as the deeper geological record makes it a valuable resource for specialists working within this emerging research specialisation's. At the same time, the book's clear language and wide range of topical focus makes it suitable for advanced students in the Earth sciences, including those reading geology, environmental science, oceanography, palaeontology and climatology courses.' The Holocene

'… a book that deserves attention by any researchers in Earth's climate history. … A time-series novice will learn enough from it to explore the technical literature. A time-series veteran will gain perspective on several controversial research topics.' International Geology Review
