Developments in Quaternary Science is designed to bring together important texts within the continually expanding field of quaternary science, providing an outlet for topics that require substantial space, are linked to major scientific events or are archival in character. The subjects covered by the series include a range of processes and palaeo-responses within the fields of geology, biology, geography, climatology archaeology and geochronology. Particular consideration is given to issues such as the quaternary development of specific regions, comprehensive treatments of specific topics such as global scale consideration of patterns of glaciation, and compendia on timely topics such as dating methodologies, environmental hazards and rapid climate changes.
