Earth’s Pre-Pleistocene Glacial
is a compilation of data from all those glacigenic sediments of
pre-Pleistocene age that were known in 1980. It was the principal outcome of
the International Geological Correlation Programme’s Project No. 38, and
includes 212 papers prepared to a standard, internationally agreed format,
covering the full spectrum of geological time up to the initiation of the
Quaternary Period. Although long out-of-print, the publishers (Cambridge
University Press) have authorised the reproduction of this work on-line, in
response to various requests to make it available again. It is anticipated
that this will be especially useful for a new IGCP project on Proterozoic
glaciations. The book is divided into pdf files of manageable size, based on
the main sections in the book. Please note that Cambridge University Press
retains the copyright on this book, and any requests to reproduce material
from this work should be addressed to them.
