Editorial Reviews

` These two volumes are a useful contribution to the literature on climatic modelling, and I am pleased to have them in my personal library. The editor, Michael Schlesinger, deserves to be congratulated on his efforts, not only in seeing the Institute proceedings through to publication, but also in organizing the overall meeting. I particularly liked the artistic sketches by David Warrilow included at the front of the individual volumes - a very nice editorial inclusion. ' Ecomod, 9 (1-2) June 1991
