Journal of Atmospheric chemistry

Very likely to become the standard source of information for anyone interested in quaternary research. A valuable source of information even for advanced researchers.The contents have been chosen with great care and thoughtfulness. Not only the contents but also the presentation and the didactic quality of the book leaves no room for criticism. The layout of the book is state-of-the-art, graphs and pictures are clear and of superb quality and the price is acceptable.
Journal of Quaternary Science

The second edition of a very fine textbook that should prove valuable to students of this increasingly important field of study. The authors are to be congratulated. A team of distinguished Australian university academics each one of whom has a deservedly excellent reputation in the various subdisciplines associated with the increasingly popular field of Quaternary science. Aimed primarily at the undergraduate market. Nevertheless, there is enough detail and development here to provide very useful and up-to-date resources for postgraduate students and researchers.

quaternary 14 Mar. 2006
By Cemal Erdem Bekaroglu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
this book that concerns with quaternary environments, is one of the best reviewed one. However, if it is comperated with "reconstructing quaternary environments" by walker and lowe, it is lack of some metods relating palaeogeographical reconstructing.
