About the Author:

Atle Nesje and Svein Olaf Dahl are both at University of Bergen.

Review:

...useful to advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers.
Journal of Quaternary Science

The book, which is quite short, covers a surprisingly large number of topics in seven well-organized main chapters. The overall impression of the book is clearly positive and the authors are to be congratulated for having undertaken such a formidable task.
World Meteorological Organization Bulletin

Provides a good introduction to the aspects of Quaternary research indicated by the title...a good book and highly recommended to all who are teaching or studying environmental change.
