Major ice ages (glacials) have occurred many times throughout earth’s history. The planet has experienced ten of them in the past one million years and another ten in the million or so years before that. Each one lasts for about 90000 years. After that it is followed by a 10000-year interglacial (warm period). We are currently living in an interglacial. Our Interglacial is about 10800 years old. 主要的冰河(冰川)已多次发生在整个地球的历史。在过去的一百万年中,地球经历了十 次,而另一个在百万年前的十。每一个持续了大约 90000 年。之后,紧随其后的是一个 10000 年的间冰期(暖期)。我们正生活在一个间冰期。我们的间冰期约 10800 岁。 Scientists call these periods of warm weather and ice age weather ‘glacial- interglacial cycles’. Scientists do not understand a lot about the climate during glacial-interglacial cycles. However, new studies are providing us with more information about the topic. This information is helpful because it gives us a long history to compare the current climate with. This allows us to see if it is unique. 科学家称这段温暖的天气和冰期冰期 - 间冰期旋回的天气。科学家不了解在冰期旋回很多关 于气候。然而,新的研究为我们提供了更多关于这个主题的信息。这个信息是有用的,因 为它给了我们一个很长的历史来比较当前的气候与。这使我们能够看到,如果它是唯一的。

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
