About the Author:

Raymond S. Bradley has been involved in many national and international activities related to paleoclimatology, most notably as Chair of the Scientific Steering Committee for the International Geosphere-Biosphere Program on Past Global Changes (IGBP-PAGES). He has published ~200 articles in scientific journals, and has edited more than a dozen important books in climatology and paleoclimatology.  Of these, Paleoclimatology, now in a fully revised 3rd edition (2014) has been the definitive text in this field for the last 20 years. His research focuses on climatic change and how the earth's climate has varied in the past. He has carried out research on climate variations, both on the long (glacial and interglacial) time-scale and on the short (historical and instrumental) time-scale, involving the analysis of data from all over the world.  In recent years he has been involved in studies of natural climate variability, to provide a background for understanding potential anthropogenic changes in climate resulting from rapid increases in greenhouse gases over the last century or so.   Ray Bradley has been a professor in the Department of Geosciences, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, USA, since 1984. Additionally, he is a member of Clare Hall at Cambridge University, and a Visiting Professor at the University of Bergen, Norway.  He currently holds the Zuckerberg Leadership Chair at the University of Massachusetts.
