Advances in climate prediction depend on a knowledge of historical climatic sequences ranging in scale from decades to Millennia. Proxy data produced by pollen, sediment, tree rings,glacier fluctuations, and ice and snow cores are valuable in the construction of climatic sequences when direct observations of the atmosphere are either spatially or temporally lacking. Links between proxy data and the atmosphere generate the most confidence when actual components of climate are preserved in the proxy medium.
