Short summary
The recent discovery of mummified wood (non-petrified) within kimberlite diamond mines in Northwest Territories, Canada, has prompted a paleoclimatic investigation of the time in which the trees grew - the earliest Eocene (ca. 53.3 Ma). Multiple proxy records derived from these samples suggest that during greenhouse climates of the Eocene, subarctic Canada was characterized by high temperatures (+16 C above modern), and multidecadal variability in cloudiness and temperature on 20-30 year cycles.
