About this book

A significant advance in climatological scholarship, Tectonic Uplift and Climate Change is a multidisciplinary effort to summarize the current status of a new theory steadily gaining acceptance in geoscience circles: that long-term cooling and glaciation are controlled by plateau and mountain uplift. Researchers in many diverse fields, from geology to paleobotany, present data that substantiate this hypothesis. The volume covers most of the key, dramatic transformations of the Earth's surface.

Reviews

`Scientists will get ideas from reading this book. They will also find interdisciplinary research that has been successful in stimulating new thought and targeting important issues, and which emphasizes the role of such interdisciplinary research in science today.'
Nature
`This volume could be used to supplement interdisciplinary advanced undergraduate or graduate courses discussing climate and climate change on geological timescales...Will enhance the collections of all college and university libraries.'
Choice (July/August 1998)
`It was a delight to review this book...professionally produced, with excellent figures and well indexed...excellent text that no science library should be without... excellent background reading for earth scientists who are interested in the nature of palaeoenvironmental change and tectonics throughout Cenozoic times...great resource for both teaching and research...'
Quaternary Science Reviews, 18 (1999)
