The aim of the book is to outline glacial landforms and sediments and to provide the reader with the tools required to interpret glacial landscapes. It describes how glaciers work and how the processes of glacial erosion and deposition which operate within them are recorded in the glacial landscape.
Glacial Geology: Ice Sheets and Landforms
The Second Edition is presented in the same clear and concise format as the First Edition, providing detailed explanations that are not cluttered with unnecessary detail. Additions include a new chapter on Glaciations around the Globe, demonstrating the range of glacial environments present on Earth today and a new chapter on Palaeoglaciology, explaining how glacial landforms and sediments are used in ice-sheet reconstructions. Like the original book, text boxes are used throughout to explain key concepts and to introduce students to case study material from the glacial literature.
Newly updated sections on Further Reading are also included at the end of each chapter to point the reader towards key references.

Sort order. Jul 02, MystaryPi rated it it was amazing. Actually a really good analysis and research on glaciers. Great book for beginners. Jul 18, Ivan Gaikowski rated it it was amazing. Filled with glacial, post-glacial, and periglacial environments and their many, many landforms, the book explains the various geological and atmospheric processes that control glaciation and their effects, past and present, on the world around us.
Granted the text is limiting, but with such an enormous topic such is to be expected.
