Proxy data is an important component to deciphering past and predicting future climates. What
is a proxy? Describe 2 proxies that we have discussed during class and explain how they are
used in the world of climate science. Your description and explanation needs to include what is
the proxy, where it is collected, how it is used, as well as, the resolution and span of the chosen
proxies.
