About the Book

The theme of the publication covers a large number of aspects of climate change and environmental degradation arising out of the geological processes in the youngest period of geological time. It aims to explore the social and scientific issues connected with surface processes, as well as the current research on Quaternary geology, climate change and natural hazards.
