Climate TimeLine Information Tool
http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/paleo/ctl/index.html

NOAA Paleoclimatology Program, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)


The Climate TimeLine (CTL) Information Tool summarizes climate history for time spans from 1 year to 100,000 years ago and beyond. The relation between human development, weather, and climate is explored. The CTL explains how past climate is measured, provides basic information on paleoclimatology, and explains the use of paleo proxies. There is a tutorial on drought and how to use the CTL to investigate that topic. There is also a climate glossary and links to climate and paleoclimate data.
