Quaternary Dating Methods describes the different techniques that can be employed to establish a Quaternary timescale, and shows the wide range of contexts in which these can be applied.
The book begins with a review of the history of Quaternary dating from the early attempts based on biblical genealogies to recent developments involving radiometric by: Atomic Structure, Radioactivity and Radiometric Dating. Radiometric dating methods form a significant component of the Quaternary scientist's dating portfolio.

Dating methods are described and evaluated, while the principles and practices of Quaternary stratigraphy are also discussed. The volume concludes with a new chapter which considers some of the key questions about the nature, causes and consequences of global climatic and environmental change over a range of temporal scales.
