From the reviews:
"The four editors, from the US, Canada, and Switzerland, all contribute their research to this volume, along with some 80 other investigators. The papers examine how trees record geological events, accurately dated by the evidence left in annual rings, and the inferences that may be drawn from these long records. ... Most analyses are highly detailed and specific, so this material will primarily interest advanced students and scientists conducting geological hazard research. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students and researchers." (M. K. Cleaveland, Choice, Vol. 48 (5), January, 2011)
"Tree Rings and Natural Hazards provides a needed and useful survey of a rapidly expanding area of research: using dendrochronology to study geomorphic hazards, including snow avalanches, landslides, rockfall, debris flows, flooding, earthquakes, and volcanic activity. ... Any tree-ring scientist ... would profit from reading this book, as would other geoscientists and specialists in natural hazards." (Jeff Lukas, Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research, Vol. 43 (1), February, 2011)
