If we would -say- estimate the anthropogenic contribution to climate
change, we would have to understand the range of natural variability.
Now, the climate of the Earth is an experiment, which is only run once,
so in order to assess this we have to look into the past climate. This
is only known through indirect paleoclimatic records. One such record
is the very long time series of paletemperature obtained from drilling
through the Greenland ice cap. This record is analyzed in order to
extract the climate information.
