7. Reconstructing the past and weathering the future Climate records we discussed how the evolution of an air mass from evaporation of ocean water to precipitation of rain and snow is accompanied by progressive depletion in 18 O, so, for example, water with δ ‎ 18 O of 0‰ evaporates water vapour depleted in 18 O (e.g. δ 18 O  = - 13 ‰ ) and that vapour condenses to form precipitation with higher δ ‎ 18 O than the vapour and a residual air mass with even lower δ ‎ 18 O.

5. Rocks in the deep really know the exterior of our planet, rather like the microbes that cling only to the surface of the skin of an apple, oblivious to the flesh of the apple that lies within. The Earth is a very large mass of rock, being over 6,000 km to its centre. Our direct experience of it goes to almost 4 km below the surface—in the deepest mines on Earth, the South African gold mines. The crust there is comparatively cool, which allows humans to penetrate that far, albeit aided by excellent cooling and ventilation systems, and

8. Human-made rocks Rocks are made out of minerals, and those minerals are not a constant of the universe. A little like biological organisms, they have evolved and diversified through time. As the minerals have evolved, so have the rocks that they make up. We have seen in the preceding chapters some of the ways in which rock units have changed through geological time. However, as regards both rocks and minerals—and the structures made of them—we seem to be entering a remarkable new phase of history. We do not know where this phase is leading to, or when or how
