Abstract

This paper is a detailed critical review of previous studies on the subject. The main conclusion reached is that the techniques applied have been too imprecise and subjective and that "a lack of relevant data of all types inhibits the development of a more detailed knowledge of events". Only in postglacial times some basic patterns in Quaternary environmental development have been established. (P. A. Pirazzoli).
