Global environmental change is placed within the context of planetary processes and deep geological time, allowing the reader to appreciate the scale of human-driven change and compare the global transition taking place today with major transitions in Earth history.5/5(1). Get this from a library! The geological record of ecological dynamics: understanding the biotic effects of future environmental change. [National Research Council (U.S.). Committee on the Geologic Record of Biosphere Dynamics.;] -- In order to answer important questions about ecosystems and biodiversity, scientists can look to the past geological record which includes fossils, sediment and.

Earth Surface Processes is an introductory text for those studying the dynamics of fluid and sediment transport in the environments, in the context of both present-day patterns as well as the environmental changes decipherable in the geological record. The book is divided into two parts. The first deals with the global-scale aspects of the earth's surface system. The geological record is thus an archive that records the causes and effects of such changes, - both in the relatively recent past (hundreds to thousands of years), and in deep time (tens to hundreds of millions of years). This module therefore focuses on how the geological record "captures" and informs on global environmental change through time.
