Reviews

"All of the contributions are clearly and competently written by contributors who have, for the most part, many years of practical experience of what they present. I can recommend this monograph with a clear conscience for academic libraries and for the rising number of scientists who deal with lake sediment studies."
(Georg Schettler, GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam, Climate Dynamics and Sediments, Potsdam, Germany in Journal of Paleolimnology, 30:4)
