Media reviews

From the reviews: "It provides the current state-of-the-art on the geodynamic architecture and history of the Mediterranean region ! . The TRANSMED Atlas is a very interesting work for those who are working in the Mediterranean and are in need of a concise overview of the current ideas on the geodynamic evolution of this particular region. ! A great asset of this atlas is the extensive, up-to-date reference list. The atlas is very well illustrated. The CD-ROM is, moreover, very user friendly." (Manuel Sintubin, Geologica Belgica, Vol. 8 (3), 2005)
