A topic on paleoclimate science for an essay

This exercise involves researching a topic on paleoclimate science for an essay. This has several intended aims:

  1. To develop methods of rigorously researching scientific questions independently. One of the most important things that all scientists have to learn is how to inform themselves from the scientific literature (or any literature base). In this exercise, you will be looking up and analysing the scientific literature.
  2. Learning about some paleoclimate topics in greater depth you would otherwise be exposed to. This subject, by its nature, can really only summarize and introduce paleoclimate research. This essay will allow you to have a greater depth of understanding on one topic so that you can appreciate the problems, methods, and uncertainties in paleoclimate studies

Literature Resources
This is a good opportunity to learn how to research a topic from the scientific literature. Books, non-technical review articles and Wikipedia are a good place to start (to get an idea of the general story), but it is expected that most of your research should come from the primary scientific literature. So don’t rely on blogs and so forth, which are generally not documented in enough depth, or scientifically rigorous enough. Wikipedia has generally become quite reliable and has primary sources listed. But you should not reference Wikipedia or base portions of your essay on it, because it is a secondary source. By far the best way to search the scientific literature at the moment is Google Scholar, in combination with Melbourne University’s library of electronic journals. Feel free to ask myself or the demonstrators for assistance. Detailed instructions on how to research and write the essay are listed below.
