About this book

Provides a unique, in-depth view of past, present and potential future climatic change in mountain regions, and in particular on the mechanisms which are responsible for this change.

' ... it will be widely consulted by a broad range of specialists and should be in the library of all institutes, universities and agencies where atmospheric and ecological sciences are represented.' The Holocene, 5:5 (1998)
