About this book

Focusing primarily on the description and analysis of paleoclimatic indicators - signals of a particular climate - this valuable reference work offers detailed explanations of biotic and lithologic indicators in the marine and terrestrial realms and includes case histories of paleoclimatic studies.

This is the only book of its kind at present. It will be an extremely useful reference text not just for paleoclimatologists, but for many others -- both researchers and students -- who would like to know how their data can be useful to the full extent. -- Jane Francis, University of Leeds GSA Today An excellent resource for researchers and a beginning point for graduate students in pre-Quaternary climatology. Northeastern Naturalist A valuable sourcebook that describes how various indicators are used to interpret paleoclimate...This text is an excellent sourcebook for professors, students and researchers who want a basic grasp of pre-Quarternary climates. -- Nina L. Baghai American Scientist
