"A masterpiece... It demonstrates what can be achieved when widespread and ambitious fieldwork is combined with extensive library work, excellent understanding, and what must have been inordinate dedication." Professor J.D. Ives

"...A modern synthesis that will be appreciated by professional scientists and graduate students both inside and outside the discipline. This book is the best of its kind, an impressive contribution to science and to education." Professor G.K.C. Clarke for the American Geophysical Union

Glaciers & Glaciation is the classic textbook for all students of glaciation. Stimulating and accessible, it has established a reputation as a comprehensive and essential resource.

In this new edition, the text, references and illustrations have been thoroughly updated to provide a state-of-the-art overview of the nature, origin and behaviour of glaciers and the geological and geomorphological evidence for their past history on earth.

The first part of the book investigates the processes involved in forming glacier ice, the nature of glacier-climate relationships, the mechanisms of glacier flow and the interactions of glaciers with other natural systems such as rivers, lakes and oceans. In the second part, the emphasis moves to landforms and sediment, the interpretation of the earth's glacial legacy and the reconstruction of glacial depositional environments and palaeoglaciology.
