Promotional Information

This book discusses glacial or glacially-controlled sequences as markers of the Earth's geodynamic and climatic history.


..".would be a significant addition to the collection of a graduate-level geology or earth-science library. For researchers who are interested in the nature of the earth's glacial record, this volume constitutes a major resource." John T. Andrews, American Scientist
