Provides a detailed account of the temporal and spatial distribution of ice sheets during the last ice age, and how these ice masses interacted with the environment. Arranged in two parts, the first part provides the tools required for evaluating past ice sheets while the second part uses these tools to establish the size, extent and dynamics of late Quaternary ice sheets. Assuming no prior knowledge of Quaternary Science, the discussion progresses from the basic principles of how and why ices ages occur, to the interpretation of proxy records of past climate and ocean change.
...The book should become essential reading in any Quaternary, glacial geology and glaciology course.... (Geological Magazine Vol.139, No.3, 2002) "...I view this book as valuable addition to the range of texts dealing with ice sheets and their interactions with global climate. a well-structured and readable text..." (Geological Journal, April/June 2003) "I recommend this book to anyone interested in Late Quaternary ice sheets..." (Polar Record, April 2002)
