Summary
Abstract: Knowledge of the evolution of atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations
throughout the Earth's history is important for a reconstruction of the links
between climate and radiative forcing of the Earth's surface temperatures.
Although atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations in the early Cenozoic era
(about 60Myr ago) are widely believed to have been higher than at present,
there is ... View entire text
