About this book

One of the world's most impressive natural wonders, glaciers are largely responsible for sculpting the landscapes we are familiar with today. Natural laboratories, glaciers hold the key to untold secrets of the pas, present, and perhaps the future. Accompanied by stunning colour photography, the author's text explores the many characteristics of glaciers, including how they form and flow, how they have shaped the land, how they record climate changes, and how they are responding to global warming.
