About this book

These proceedings record the results of climate change in many areas which are hyper-arid deserts today but which, almost cyclically, at intervals of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of years, have had a much more humid climate.


Contents

Quaternary sedimentation and diagenesis; hydrogeology and geochemical applications to quaternary deserts; quaternary analogs to ancient and remote sediments; dunes and inland sabkhas; fluvial and wadi systems; remote sensing and archaeology.
