"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 updatedtext, the provision of colour and case study strategy of deliveryhave ensured that it will be a firm favourite with students andwill be one of the first references entered on to my recommendedreading lists well into the future." (The Holocene, August2010)

"The book is written in an accessible manner andwell-illustrated; undergraduate students will thus embrace it as afirst 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.

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.

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.
