THE CRETACEOUS WORLD

  
Published by the Open University and Cambridge University Press.

​​​​​​​  

Edited by Peter Skelton

  
(Softback) (Second hand copy in very good condition)

   

The rich geological record of the Cretaceous Period reveals a world that experienced extreme climatic warmth and significantly higher global sea-levels than today. It therefore provides a natural case study of the Earth in ‘greenhouse’ climatic mode, which this interdisciplinary textbook analyses from the perspective of Earth System Science.

  

With mounting concerns over global warming today, an understanding of how the Earth system operates when in greenhouse mode is very relevant to studies of future climatic change.

  

This book is aimed at advanced undergraduates and graduates. A basic understanding of sedimentary rocks, fossils, sedimentary geochemistry and major Earth processes (such as plate tectonics and the rock cycle) is therefore necessary.

  

Published by the Open University and Cambridge University Press. Softback. 2003. Colour photographs, maps and diagrams throughout. 360 pages. Very good condition.
