About this book

This volume presents the final report of Project 24 of the International Geological Correlation Programme. The publication is drawn from the contributions of leading individual scientists as well as from scientific research teams. It reflects the present state of knowledge of the Quaternary glaciations in the Northern hemisphere and their correlation in space and time as well as providing a unique summary of climatic change. A wealth of information is presented in over 50 articles and 19 large format charts, including an overall correlation chart.
