Book Description

March 29, 2010 0470516909 978-0470516904 2
The new Second Edition of Glacial Geology provides a modern, comprehensive summary of glacial geology and geomorphology. It is has been thoroughly revised and updated from the original First Edition. This book will appeal to all students interested in the landforms and sediments that make up glacial landscapes.

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.

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.  The book is illustrated throughout with colour photographs and illustrations.

Review

"The book is written in an accessible manner and well-illustrated; undergraduate students will thus embrace it as a first resource." (Experimental Agriculture, 2010)"Indeed, the revised and updated text, the provision of colour and case study strategy of delivery have ensured that it will be a firm favourite with students and will be one of the first references entered on to my recommended reading lists well into the future." (The Holocene, August 2010)

"The book is written in an accessible manner and well-illustrated; undergraduate students will thus embrace it as a first resource." (Geological Magazine, 2010)

From the Publisher

This book provides a modern comprehensive summary of glacial geology. During the Late Cenozoic period much of the northern hemisphere was extensively glaciated. This had a profound affect on the nature of the landscape. In order to understand this landscape one must be able to identify and interpret the glacial landforms and sediments from which it is composed. In a clear and precise format, this book explains these landforms and sediments and provides the reader with the tools with which to interpret them. It shows how glaciers work and how the processes of glacial erosion and deposition which operate within them are recorded. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read textbook January 20, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is easy to read and is laid out well. I needed it for a glacial climatology class. The book contains a great deal of information on glaciers, but very little on climate and a glacier's response to climate change. However, this does not take away from the information on glacial geology.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great tool for a great class February 6, 2007
Format:Paperback
I bought this book for a class this semester. The first minute I opened the book I was intrigued with all the tables, figures and pictures aside from all of the other information that makes this book a great tool in my glacial geology class. I'd advise this book for any geology student who wants to add to their unending libraries of college textbooks.
