The new Second Edition of Glacial Geology provides a modern,comprehensive summary of glacial geology and geomorphology. It ishas been thoroughly revised and updated from the original FirstEdition. This book will appeal to all students interested in thelandforms and sediments that make up glacial landscapes. The aim of the book is to outline glacial landforms andsediments and to provide the reader with the tools required tointerpret glacial landscapes. It describes how glaciers work andhow the processes of glacial erosion and deposition which operatewithin them are recorded in the glacial landscape. The Second Edition is presented in the same clear and conciseformat as the First Edition, providing detailed explanations thatare not cluttered with unnecessary detail. Additions include a newchapter on Glaciations around the Globe, demonstrating the range ofglacial environments present on Earth today and a new chapter onPalaeoglaciology, explaining how glacial landforms and sedimentsare used in ice-sheet reconstructions. Like the originalbook, text boxes are used throughout to explain key concepts and tointroduce students to case study material from the glacialliterature. Newly updated sections on Further Reading are alsoincluded at the end of each chapter to point the reader towards keyreferences. The book is illustrated throughout with colourphotographs and illustrations.
