Abstract

This volume provides a background for an international research project on global continental palaeohydrology over the last 20 000 yr established as a Commission by INQUA, in 1991. Following an introductory chapter the remaining 13 chapters are organised in three sections: part I contains six chapters on particular aspects of change relevant to global palaeohydrology of continental areas, such as the impact of large ice sheets on continental palaeohydrology, vegetation and lake level change, human activity and palaeohydrology; in part II five chapters review the state of knowledge in the four major zones identified for the purposes of the research project, ie the humid tropics, arid and semi-arid regions, the temperate zone, and polar and subpolar regions; the concluding part contains a section on a database for global continental palaeohydrology, and an outline research programme. -G.E.Hodgson
