Media reviews

'The publication of A Geologic Time Scale 2004, written by an international team of 40 scientists, is a milestone in our understanding of that past, and sets the standard in stratigraphy. The situation was last reviewed in 1989, and it will be another decade at least before it is revisited. Best get your copy now.' New Scientist 'One cannot help being struck by the amount of information in this volume ! a triumph of scholarship, that will serve the profession and the public well.' Episodes 'This is a volume that should be in all good geological libraries.' Geological Magazine
