Past Glacial Environments

This undergraduate textbook provides a current and comprehensive survey of the sediments and forms generated within Pleistocene and pre-Pleistocene glacial environments. Techniques and methods used in the examination of these sediments and forms are extensively reviewed. This is the most comprehensive and wide-ranging book ever prepared on this topic, and will form the basis for future work in the area. In studying past glacial environments, links are made between understanding modern glaciodynamics, ice physics, and the processes of erosion, transport and deposition of glacial sediments and the generation of various glacial landforms. Past Glacial Environments presents physical geography, earth and environmental science students with an extensive review of the latest research on past glacial environments. The text encompasses Pleistocene subglacial, supraglacial and proglacial sediments and environments, pre-Pleistocene global glacial conditions and sediments, as well as past glacioaeolian, glaciolacustrine, and glaciomarine sediments. Subsequent chapters focus on stratigraphy, lithofacies associations, paleosols, glacio-eustasy and isostasy, micromorphology, SEM, drift prospecting and placer mining.

Modern Glacial Environments provides a current and comprehensive survey of the glaciology, geomorphology and sedimentology of modern glaciers and ice sheets through an appreciation of the processes, dynamics and sediments found in these environments. The book presents university students with a comprehensive review of modern research and ideas on glacial environments incorporating glaciology, glacial geomorphology and geology and sedimentology. This text considers the cause of glaciation, ice sheet modelling, glacial physics, hydrology, processes of erosion, transportation, deposition and glaciotectonism. Other

Sediments are the most valuable form of physical evidence for past Earth surface processes. They have the potential to build up an archive of events and provide a window into the past. Through careful examination of sediments the shifting patterns of surface processes across space and time are revealed, allowing us to reconstruct past environments and environmental change. A Practical Guide to the Study of Glacial Sediments is a guide to the standard techniques employed to read the sedimentary record

A fascinating and informative exploration of periglacial processes, past and present, and their role in landscape evolution Periglacial Geomorphology presents a comprehensive introduction to the processes that operate in present periglacial environments and discusses the inferences that can be drawn about former periglacial environments from those processes. Organized into six parts, the book opens with the historical and scientific context of periglacial geomorphology and the nature of periglacial environments. Following chapters provide systematic coverage of the full range of topics

The Periglacial Environment, Fourth Edition, is an authoritative overview of the world’s cold, non-glacial environments. First published in 1976 and subsequently revised in 1996 and 2007, the text has been the international standard for nearly 40 years. The Fourth Edition continues to be a personal interpretation of the frost-induced conditions, geomorphic processes and landforms that characterize periglacial environments. Part One discusses the periglacial concept and describes the typical climates and ecosystems that are involved. Part Two describes the geocryology (permafrost science) associated with

"Physical Geology is a comprehensive introductory text on the physical aspects of geology, including rocks and minerals, plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanoes, glaciation, groundwater, streams, coasts, mass wasting, climate change, planetary geology and much more. It has a strong emphasis on examples from western Canada, especially British Columbia, and also includes a chapter devoted to the geological history of western Canada. The book is a collaboration of faculty from Earth Science departments at Universities and Colleges across British Columbia and elsewhere"
