'Dryland Climatology provides the tools for an integrated understanding of the major drivers and effects of dryland climates [and] is much more than a traditional climatology monograph … Written by a leading climatologist with decades of active research in arid environments, this unique book addresses a readership of students, researchers, and practitioners in the fields of dryland science … I strongly recommend this topical book for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses and as a reference for research on dryland climates and arid landscapes.' Eos, Transactions, American Geophysical Union
'Dryland Climatology presents a unique view of dryland climates from a broad perspective. The author, Sharon Nicholson, draws together over 30 years of her research in drylands to provide a comprehensive, 500-plus-page review of dryland climates … comprehensive yet skilfully crafted to explain detailed and complex concepts in an easy-to-follow manner … this volume has been very carefully thought through and nicely presented. [It] is a must for anybody interested in dryland systems and certainly reaches audiences far beyond the title.' Adrian G. Parker, The Holocene
