Errata and Updates
This page lists important
corrections and significant updates to the
AMS Ocean Studies Textbook and Investigations Manual.
- Update to textbook Figures 12.7 and 12.8: These
figures were taken from the 1990 IPCC Assessment.
In recent years, the proxy climate data used to construct these graphs
has been questioned, and the scientific consensus is that they are no
longer accurate portrayals. The IPCC Fourth Assessment
report (2007) provides figures that will be used in the next textbook
edition, substituting for 12.7 and 12.8. We encourage you to examine
the following graphs:
of NH temperature variation during the last 1300 years
