Admirably fills a major gap in paleoclimate reference and teaching material...The strong points of the text are a balance between observations and modeling, and a strong emphasis on the important problems being investigated in earth history. Paleoclimatology clearly transmits the importance of the subject area and the tremendous advances in the field. The book is well-written and well-illustrated. Economic Geology
