GLACIAL LANDSYSTEMS

Heftet / 2005 / Engelsk
This book is a comprehensive overview of the ever-captivating field of glaciation from the perspective of glacial landsystems. This approach models the many processes, forms and interactions that can be found in glaciated landscapes throughout the world. Landsystems models allow the glacial geologist and geomorphologist to evaluate these landscapes in relation to the dynamics of glaciation and to climate and geology. Glacial Landsystems brings together the expertise of an international range of specialists to provide an up-to-date summary of landsystems relevant to both modern and ancient glacier systems and also in the reconstruction and interpretation of former glacial environments. The models are applicable at all scales from ice sheets to small valley glaciers.This book is an essential reference for students of glaciation.

This edited volume reflects the growth of information about glacial-influenced sediment sequences and depositional environments......The book illustrates the potential of the landsystems concept with respect to the orientation of future research into mountain geomorphological systems, and provides a sound basis for improvement associated with sustainable development and management of such sensitive earth systems.- Volume 24, No 4, November 2004Mountain Research and DevelopmentThe book presents valuable reviews and new syntheses on glacial process-form models that represent wide-ranging geographic settings and styles of glaciation.Boreas 33All the chapters are well written and contain a wealth of information.Journal of Quaternary Science
