In combining and revising the two titles 'Past Glacial Environments' and 'Modern Glacial Environments', Dr Menzies and his contributors provide the most comprehensive and wide-ranging book ever prepared on both topics. This text is produced with the student mind, providing accessibility to a complex subject and introducing topics that provide the fundamental underpinnings of knowledge on glaciers, ice sheets, their sediments and landscapes. Modern and Past Glacial Environments features a large collection of photographs, line diagrams and tables and includes examples of glacial environments and landscapes which are drawn from a world wide perspective. Together with a web- based set of current and comprehensive references and bibliographic sources, it provides an ideal reference text. This survey includes coverage of the glaciology, geomorphology and sedimentology of modern glaciers and ice sheets, and the sediments and forms generated within Pleistocene and pre-Pleistocene glacial environments. Quaternary scientists and students will find this work their first point of reference. Likewise students of Physical Geography, Geology, Earth Science, Engineering Geology, Civil Engineering, and Environmental Sciences should find this a useful guide and reference to Glacial Geomorphology and Geology.

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

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
