Series: Developments in Earth and Environmental Sciences

This series aims to provide a forum for in-depth works on current, topical issues in the interdisciplinary area of earth and environmental sciences, that are too great in scope for individual journal articles or thematic issues. Studies in which the links between geological sciences, human activities and the environment are discussed are especially appropriate for inclusion in this series. Research monographs, edited volumes, advance level textbooks as well as proceedings volumes are included in Developments in Earth and Environmental Sciences.
