A fascinating book presenting the work of the world’s premier paleoclimatologist on the world’s highest equatorial peaks in search of clues to global warming. Bowen accompanied scientist Lonnie Thompson on several expeditions, and includes accounts of other expeditions as well, to deep-drill into glacier cores. Thompson has spent more time in the ‘death zone’ than anyone alive. Here are accounts of his experiences on Quelccaya (1974-84), Qilian Shan China (1984, 86, 87), Antarctic (1988-90), Kunlun Shan China (1991-92), Huascaran (1991, 93), Sajama (1997), Tibet (1997), and Kilimanjaro (1999, 2000). This is an important read about what the world’s shrinking glaciers have to tell us about the past, and our potential future.
