‘Tipping points’ in the Earth system are characterised by a nonlinear response to gradual forcing, and may have severe and wide-ranging impacts. Many abrupt events result from simple underlying system dynamics termed ‘critical transitions’ or ‘bifurcations’. One of the best ways to identify and potentially predict threshold behaviour in the climate system is through analysis of natural (‘palaeo’)...
