Although the last ice age ended about then 10,000 years ago, its effect are still influencing human activities today - for example: coastal engineering, siting of nuclear waste depositories, intraplate earthquake mitigation, inaccuracy of a global positioning due to changes in the geodetic reference frame, and more. The recognition of ice ages and glacial isostasy led to the first scientific revolution in earth science. During the last few decades, studies of the dynamics of the ice age earth have brought together various disciplines - including geomorphology, geodynamics, rock and ice rheology, geodesy, glaciology, oceanography, climatology, astronomy, engineering and archaeology. Recent interest in the subject has surged forward due to new advances in space-age geodetic techniques and new developments in modelling methods. The purpose of this volume is to bring the reader up-to-date on the latest developments and to foster contributions, from various branches of science, to the understanding of ice age geodynamics.
