The most significant input into the glacial system is the ice itself which accumulates high up in mountain corries through snowfall and avalanches. However, as with other landscape systems, at the heart of the glacial system is the movement of sediment: debris enters the glacier through rock fall (of weathered material) and erosion of .

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. Until the early Glacial systems book, few sedimentologists had studied glacial deposits in terms of their sedimentary facies, facies associations, and stratigraphy.

Glacigenic sediments were mainly analyzed in relation to landform development and geochronology of “drifts” rather than their textures, sedimentary structures, or large-scale bedding.

About this book Associating ice masses with the transport and deposition of sediments has long formed a central theme in glaciology and glacial geomorphology. The reason for this focus is clear, in that ice masses are responsible for much of the physical landscape which characterizes the Earth's glaciated regions.

Since then, Earth has been in an interglacial period called the Holocene. Glacial periods are colder, dustier, and generally drier than interglacial periods.

These glacial–interglacial cycles are apparent in many marine and terrestrial paleoclimate records from around the world. 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.

Snow and ice are stored in the glacier until they melt as the glacier reaches lower elevations. This concept is explored in more detail in the Introduction to Glacier Mass Balance page and the pages on Glacier Flow.

The first part of the book investigates the processes involved in forming glacier ice, the nature of glacier/climate relationships, the mechanisms of glacier flow, and the interactions of glaciers with other natural systems such as rivers, lakes, and oceans.

In the second part, the emphasis moves to landforms and sediment. Bell (earth & environmental science, Sutherland High School), presents this accessible student guide to the science of glaciers. The book opens by introducing the Lovelock Gaia hypothesis and motivating glacier science as a major abiotic component of the homeostatic planetary system.

It seems obvious that rivers this wild and stunning are protected, yet the harsh reality is that many have been dammed, mainly to provide power for aluminum plants. A massive conservation movement is underway to preserve these rivers, but will it succeed.

At Glacier's End gives a voice to Iceland's glacial. The new Second Edition of Glacial Geology provides a modern, comprehensive summary of glacial geology and geomorphology. It is has been thoroughly revised and updated from the original First Edition.

This book will appeal to all students interested in the landforms and sediments that make up glacial landscapes. The aim of the book is to outline glacial. “‘Glacial Systems and Landforms’ creates a unique educational experience that incorporates incredible, detailed descriptions in text, as well as a virtual experience which allows students to see present-day images of glaciers and the landscapes the ice has left behind.” —Sean C.
