Editorial Reviews

Review

Sheds light on modern trends on modern trends in the Earth's climate.

(Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society 1900-01-00)

A promising overview of the science of paleoclimatology... recommended.

(Choice 1900-01-00)

Everyone curious about the climate system, its history and current state of understanding... would be well-advised to acquire a copy of this erudite and elegantly written book.

(D.Q. Bowen Quarternary Science Reviews)

I strongly recommend this book as essential background material for graduate students, an up-to-date review for researchers in the field and an important resource for anyone with a general interest in climatic change.

(Iain Robertson The Holocene 1900-01-00)

an excellent review and stimulating discussion of the state of art and current hot topics in this socio-economically important discipline to the scientific community of palaeoclimate researchers and students in this field.

(Polar Research 1900-01-00)

There is much to be recommended, and the book will serve well in many libraries, both institutional and personal.

(A. Townsend Peterson Quaterly Review of Biology)

Review

Encyclopedic in its coverage, Paleoclimates features a truly incredible breadth of topics.

(Benjamin P. Flower, University of South Florida)|

Paleoclimates is a most useful reference. Thomas M. Cronin's command of such a broad scope is impressive.

(Tom Johnson, University of Minnesota, Duluth)

Tom Cronin is a leader in the field of climate reconstruction. The book is well written and organized. He clearly explains the science of reconstructing past climates and why that is important to understanding how climate changes. In this book Dr. Cronin has laid out the state of the art in the way that only somene with his expertise can. I bought a hard copy of this book and then bought an electronic copy so that I could spend more time on it. It is information dense but understandable.

Format: Hardcover
I use this book in my day to day research, as well as to learn more about new topics that I don't study personally. Very well written, so many useful citations/papers, and organized to broach various topics over various timescales. Tom is a fantastic scientist, and this book is a testament to his extremely broad knowledge base and is just a sample of what it is like having conversations with him in person.
