About this book

Describes the origin and formation of lakes in order to give context to the question of how lacustrine deposits form. It explains the process of sedimentation in lakes and the chemistry of those deposits and describes how the age of lakes is determined.

It is a one-volume reference work as well as a challenging text. Thank you, Andy Cohen!
