Climate can be defined by the long-term statistics that describe the behavior and structure of the Earth’s atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, and according to Vernadsky (1945) the noosphere (“mind-sphere” or the Earth’s mental sheathe). Generally speaking, all life on the Earth depends on the hospitality of its climate. Any change in the Earth’s climate will have an immediate impact on humankind, biodiversity, and on the health. Climate of the past may be studied by the processing of thermal data observed in wells. The selection of the most suitable wells, intervals of thermal data analysis and different methodologies applied for such investigation are considered in this Chapter. Some nonlinear (and strongly nonlinear) aspects of thermal data examination may assist to re-estimate certain climate phenomena.
