Research being undertaken by several members of the iGlass community was presented at the recent  EGU 2014 conference in Vienna and picked up by the BBC.

With the title “Scientists Probe Earth’s Last Warm phase” the article describes how the most comprehensive data record for the Last interglacial has been compiled and provides new insights into the patterns of  warming at the poles during this time.  Dr Emilie Capron, an iGlass research scientist at the British Antarctic Survey, told the BBC:

“Interglacial conditions, warm conditions, were in place earlier in the Southern Hemisphere than in the Northern Hemisphere.

Eventually, the Northern Hemisphere catches up and then both poles are warmer than they are today. It’s something we knew looking at a few records, but now we have more records showing exactly the same pattern”
