The Introduction to Paleoclimatology Web site is provided by NOAA's Paleoclimatology Program of the National Climatic Data Center. Paleoclimatology is the study of climate prior to the widespread availability of records of temperature, precipitation, and other instrumental data. The site describes why paleoclimatolgy should be studied, how it's studied, what is currently known about the subject, and more. An educational and outreach link provides additional resources such as paleoclimatology slides, an in-depth look at topics significant to climate change, and a climate time line information tool, among others. As a non-technical and easily read educational source, the site does a good job of explaining this potentially confusing subject to younger audiences.
