The cover photo of part of the Antarctic Ice Sheet prompts the questions of where, how often, and why have there been scenes like this during the past three billion years. Crowell (geological sciences and crustal studies, U. of California, Santa Barbara) shares his perspective on the significance of the historical record on glaciation, and concludes that computer models may aid in understanding the complex factors causing climate variations. Includes maps and photos of the evidence. Lacks an index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
