Media reviews

From the reviews: "In many geological epochs, glacial sediments are widespread. ! Two types of glacial sediments exist: those from sea-ice and those from icebergs. ! This reference book for researchers working on this kind of sediments provides a complete overview of the various glacial deposits in the ocean." (Oceanis, Vol. 27 (3-4), 2003) "The book will appeal primarily to those working in cold climates with an interest in sedimentology and sedimentological processes. The book follows a clear and logical structure. ! The strength of this book is its global coverage and synthesis of huge amounts of data. The topics covered provide an exhaustive text on sea-ice and iceberg sedimentation ! . This is a good book covering a topic that will be of interest to many readers of The Holocene." (Neil F. Glasser, The Holocene, Vol. 14 (6), 2004) "The publication of the English Language version of Alexander Lisitzin's monograph on iceberg and sea ice sedimentation is timely. ! It is aimed as a reference book for researchers working on glacial and sea ice influenced sedimentary environments and deposits. ! Undoubtedly, a positive aspect of this book is its summary of, and reference to, a large amount of Russian literature on sea ice and iceberg sedimentation and high latitude marine environments." (Colm A" Cofaigh, Antarctic Science, Vol. 15 (4), December, 2003)
