Add a review


Concerned with laminated sediments of marine or lacustrine origin. Laminated sediments are unique in providing annual or sub-annual resolution, often recording individual depositional events. The book acts as a focus for results of current studies ranging from the Black Sea to the deep sea laminations of the equatorial Pacific. This volume will be of interest to geologists, sedimentologists, oceanographers and all who are concerned with climate change.
