'the editors have done as well as they possibly could in condensing the output of an immense and rather intractable task to 804 pages, albeit large pages of small but quite clear print ... The book will make a valuable addition to libraries and as such is strongly recommended.' Joe McCall in the Geoscientist, 8:9 'The book should be in standard use for practicing and research geologists, teachers and students. It would also profit civil servants and officials holding posts in environmental and nature resources departments' Pure and Applied Geophysics
