"A tour de force of the state of modern glaciology." Global and Planetary Change

"...provides students and practicing glaciologists with the tools they need to understand modern glaciology. The organization of the book makes it ideal for use as a textbook." - Journal of the American Water Resources Association

This new edition of a successful textbook is intended to give upper division and graduate students the tools they need to understand modern glaciology. Practicing glacial geologists and glaciologists will also find it useful as a reference book. Relatively simple concepts are introduced first, followed by mathematically more sophisticated chapters. Student exercises are included.From reviews of the first edition:' a stimulating and educative text.' Journal of Glaciology' a tour de force of the state of modern glaciology ' Global and Planetary Change

This text approaches the field of glaciology from the bottom up. Starting at a level considerably less advanced than that of other texts on the subject, it carefully develops the theoretical principles one step at a time. A major goal is to help students better understand the physical processes that develop glacier landforms. with frequent applications of the theory to real-world situations are given.
