Abstract: In the past, earth’s climate has sometimes been warmer and sometimes colder than today. Earth cooled during the last 50 million years. During the last 3 million years, large ice sheets on North America and Eurasia have grown and disintegrated every 40,000 or 100,000 years. This talk describes the evidence for these events, some of these causes, and current research to improve our knowledge of the ice ages.
