My interests are in climate variability across a wide range of time scales. Im particularly interested in how present day climate differs from climates in the past, and what may have caused climates to change.

I have written or edited thirteen books on climatic change and paleoclimatology, including Paleoclimatology: Reconstructing Climates of the Quaternary (3rd edition: 2014: Elsevier/Academic Press), and Ive authored over 180 refereed articles on these topics. Other books include:

Global Warming and Political Intimidation. University of Massachusetts Press, Amherst, 167pp. (Japanese translation published August 2012 by Kagaku Dojin, Tokyo).

The Hadley Circulation, Present, Past and Future (H.F. Diaz and R.S. Bradley, eds.) 2004. Kluwer Academic, Dordrecht, 511pp.

Paleoclimate, Global Change and the Future (K. Alverson, R.S. Bradley and T.F. Pedersen, eds.) 2003. Springer, Berlin, 220pp.
