MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book is an authoritative, well organized and generally accessible manual for the practicing paleolimnologist. It provides guidance on how to plan a drilling campaign, interpret the morphology of the lake basin, recover and log cores and place the sediments within a chronological framework."
(T.C. Partridge, Climatology Research Group, University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa in Journal of Paleolimnology, 30:4)
