Quaternary studies provide the essential context for evaluation of what is happening with Earth's climate today and to clarify our vulnerability to hazardous natural processes. This book covers scientific aspects of past and present climatic changes of quaternary period focussed on Indian subcontinent via response of modern environmental conditions on climate proxies, reconstruction of paleo-climate, paleo-monsoon, glacial geology, climate variabilities using dendrochronology, cave deposits including quaternary tectonics and climate change over the Himalayan region. It consists of data generated from different landforms like lakes, Caves, rivers, swamps, pit/trench using different proxies. Aimed at researchers, graduate students, professionals in geology, geography and environmental sciences, micropaleontology, quaternary climate change, this book Studies Quaternary climate using various proxies in varied environments in Indian sub-continent Covers pertinent historical and environmental archives to understand current climate scenario Discusses impact of climate change on biotic and abiotic components Includes thorough review of paleoclimate change studies Devotes significant space to glacial geology and all glacial climate proxies.


Dr. Khare, presently Adviser / Scientist G to the Government of India at MoES. has a very distinctive acumen not only of administration but also of quality science and research in his areas of expertise covering large spectrum of geographically distinct locations like Antarctic, Arctic, Southern Ocean, Bay of Bengal, Arabian Sea, Indian Ocean etc. Dr. Khare has almost 30 years of experience in the field of paleoclimate research using paleobiology (Paleontology) / teaching / science management /administration / coordination for scientific programmes (including Indian Polar Programme) etc. Having completed his doctorate (Ph.D) on tropical marine region and Doctor of Science (D.Sc) on Southern High latitude marine regions towards environmental / climatic implications using various proxies including foraminifera (micro-fossil), have made significant contributions in the field of Paleoclimatology of Southern high latitude regions (Antarctic and Southern Ocean) using Micropaleontology as a tool. These studies coupled with his palaeoclimatic reconstructions from tropical regions helped understand causal linkages and tele-connections between the processes taking place in Southern high latitudes with that of climate variability occurring in tropical regions. Dr. Khare has been conferred Honorary Professor and Adjunct Professor by many Indian Universities. He has very impressive list of publications to his credit (121 research articles in National and International Scientific journals; 3 Special Issues of National Scientific Journals as Guest Editor; Edited Special Issue of Polar Science (Elsevier) as its Managing Editor. Authored/ edited many books, 130 Abstracts have been contributed to various seminars; 23 Popular Science Articles; 5 Technical reports). Government of India and many professional bodies have bestowed him with many prestigious Awards for his humble scientific contributions to Past climate changes/ Oceanography / Polar Science and Southern Oceanography The most coveted award is Rajiv Gandhi National Award -2013 conferred by Honourable President of India Other include ISCA YOUNG SCIENTIST AWARD, BOYSCAST FELLOWSHIP, CIES FRENCH FELLOWSHIP, KRISHNAN GOLD MEDAL, BEST SCIENTISTAWARD, EMINENT SCIENTIST AWARD, ISCA Platinum Jubilee Lecture, IGU Fellowship, besides many. Dr. Khare has made tremendous efforts to popularize ocean science and polar science across the country by way of delivering many Invited lectures, radio talks and publishing popular science articles. Dr. Khare has sailed in Arctic Ocean as a part of "Science PUB" in 2008 during the International Polar Year campaign for scientific exploration in Arctic Ocean and became the first Indian to sail in the Arctic Ocean.
