About this book

Presents an up-to-date account of the rich variety of uses of magnetic measurements in the environmental geosciences.

'[The editors] have done an excellent job of marshalling contributors to provide well-written, interesting and detailed accounts of their respective areas of expertise ! a highly significant and up-to-date summary of environmental magnetism and will be a useful (?compulsory) resource for graduate students and practitioners.' Stephen Stokes, The Holocene 'I highly recommend this well-written and organized book to anyone interested in the latest tools for understanding climatic change.' Donald R. Prothero, PRISCUM
