The North American Arctic was one of the last regions on Earth to be settled by humans, due to its extreme climate, limited range of resources, and remoteness from populated areas. Despite these factors, it holds a complex and lengthy history relating to Inuit, Iñupiat, Inuvialuit, Yup'ik and Aleut peoples and their ancestors.   The reconstruction revealed five stages of climatic change: a cold and dry latest deglacial (prior to ~11, cal. yr BP), a warm and wet early-Holocene (~11, to ~ cal. yr BP), a considerably cooled and dried middle Holocene (~ to ~ cal. yr BP), a resumed warm and wet late-Holocene (~ to ~ cal. yr BP), and a relatively Cited by: Purchase Paleoclimatology - 3rd Edition.

The task of understanding climate change and predicting future change would be complex enough if only natural forcing mechanisms were involved. It is significantly more daunting because of the introduction of anthropogenic forcing and even more so considering the limitations in available records.

Paleoclimatology (in British spelling, palaeoclimatology) is the study of climates for which direct measurements were not taken. As instrumental records only span a tiny part of Earth history, the reconstruction of ancient climate is important to understand natural variation and the evolution of.

Global climate during the Holocene responded to orbital, solar, and volcanic forcings, as well as internal variability. Global climate shifts influenced atmospheric circulation patterns, such as the migration of the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), which in turn influenced local weather patterns.
