Climate changed abruptly at tipping points in past

Caving News from Science Daily -

Climate scientists identify abrupt transitions in climate records that may have been caused by the climate system crossing a tipping point. They devised a statistical method to determine whether these transitions are simply noise or evidence of a more significant change. Their method is less error-prone than previous methods, since it doesn't rely on human determination. It also allows comparing different records consistently and can identify important events that may have been overlooked in older studies.

Eastwater - created

Council of Southern Caving Clubs -

Eastwater 35ft Pitch Often referred to as Dolphin Pitch Request Received: October 2020 The current bolts that are in place, are in my opinion becoming quite dodgy and ideally should be backed up to other belay points if possible. This area would benefit well from new trusted resin anchors as it receives a large amount of traffic, including among student groups who may not have experience in evaluating the condition of spits or similar style anchors.
