A Practical Guide to the Study of Glacial Sediments
Recensioner i media
'An excellent clear and concise guide.' Dr Ian Alsop, University of Saint Andrews A Practical Guide to the Study of Glacial Sediments deserves to achieve a large circulation; it is designed to be taken into the field, and fortunately, it is cheaper. Boreas Book Reviews Vol 34 ' A practical guide to the study of glacial sediments fills a gap in the array of recent undergraduate textbooks.' 'I suspect that A practical guide to the study of glacial sediments will be another best-seller from the author of the widely used textbook Glaciers and glaciation. As a teacher, I have been presented with an accessibly written and well-illustrated textbook that might substitute much of my own teaching material.' The Holocene 15, 7 pp 1100-1103 I would unhesitatingly recommend this excellent book not only to undergraduates or postgraduates undertaking a glacial geologic/geomorphic research project, but also to colleagues wanting to get quickly up to speed on the established techniques in glacial field research.
