European Glacial Landscapes: The Role of Glaciers in Shaping the Landscape of Europe brings together relevant experts on the history of glaciers and their impact on the landscape of the main regions of Europe. In some regions the largest recorded glaciations occurred before the Last Glacial Cycle, in one of the major glacial cycles of the Middle Pleistocene. However, the best-preserved evidence of glaciation in the landscape is from the Last Glacial Cycle (Late Pleistocene). In many areas, the European glaciers recorded their last maximum expansion from around between 29,000 to 19,000 years ago, when ice-sheets covered all the Scandinavian countries, Finland, much of the British Isles, the shores of the Baltic Sea and Central-Europe until roughly the present Rhine River. The glaciers covered also large areas of the main European mountains, such as the Urals, the Carpathians, the Alps, the Balkans, the Pyrenees, etc. Even in the southernmost mountains glaciers were present, sometimes forming substantial ice caps with cirque glaciers on relatively low mountains bordering the Mediterranean Sea. The book examines the landscapes produced by glaciers throughout Europe, from the earliest recorded glaciations to the most impressive and most obvious legacy of the Last Glacial Cycle.In addition to the geomorphological effects of glaciations, the book also examines the chronology and evolution of the past glaciers, with the aim of understanding the interrelationship between glacial expansion and climate changes on this continent. Glacial expansion and retreat occurred numerous times over the last million years, with cold periods interrupted by short warm periods, interglacials, with massive shrinkage of the glaciers. Curiously, each of glacial expansions in Europe reached limits very similar to the previous ones, erasing in part previous landforms and deposits. In fact, the glaciers of the Last Glacial Cycle erased most of the landforms left by the previous cycles, although with a few notable exceptions. The book also analyses these older glacial landforms that can sometimes still be seen in the landscape today. Together, the glacial landforms and associated deposits of Europe represent highly valuable heritage of past environmental changes and their consequences on the layout of rivers, soil characteristics, coastal, lowlands and highland landforms. This analysis serves to better understand the succession of Pleistocene glaciations and the intervening interglacial periods and to examine their possible continental synchrony or asynchrony of past glacier behaviour. The ultimate result of this analysis is to provide important new insights and information on the origin and effects of climatic and geomorphological variability across Europe. Provides a synthesis that highlights the main similarities or differences, through both space and time, during the maximum recorded expansions of Pleistocene glaciers in Europe Features research from experts in glacial geomorphology, palaeo-glaciology, palaeo-climatology and palaeo-oceanography on glacial expansion in Europe Includes access to a website with an interactive map, photos of glacial features, and geospatial data about the landscapes related to glacial expansions in Europe

"The results provide revolutionary insights into the glacial climate of Stage 3 and the landscapes and resources that influenced late Palaeolithic life-styles. New hypotheses are offered to explain why and how Neanderthal and modern human societies chose where to settle and why they moved on in the face of ever-changing conditions. Above all, the models presented in this volume raise a host of new questions about differences in the human responses to climate and environment, not just between the two separate

This beautifully illustrated, elegant synthesis of current research and interpretation of European and North American landscape use is the most comprehensive volume available in the field. Much more than an up-to-date overview, the book offers a treatment of cultural, social, political, technological, and philosophical issues as they influence landscape history, including an examination of the environmental impact of human activity. In addition, it closely traces the development of the discipline and profession of landscape architecture. Drawn from the latest literature

Boken gir en detaljert oversikt over naturen i Nord-Europa, og tar for seg dyreliv fra Island til Nordvest-Russland, og fra Danmark til Svalbard. Boken setter søkelys på regionens vide spekter av planter og dyr, og hvor de hører hjemme. Man ser også på hvilke betingelser som i årenes løp har formet dyre- og plantelivet, med hovedvekt på menneskenes inngripen i naturen i eldre og nyere tid. En rekke arter har fått egne artikler.

Until now no overview of the Quaternary deposits of northeastern Europe has been available. This book fills the gap. It presents the state of research on Quaternary stratigraphy and geology, with emphasis on glacial deposits, discusses the general scientific ideas and gives an overview of the methods of investigation, some of which have rarely been applied elsewhere. It has become apparent that the region covered has many environmental problems, and a proper understanding of the Quaternary deposits is a basic
