About this book

Provides a thorough, updated account of glaciers and ice sheets as monitors and indicators of environmental change and global climate change.

...useful to advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers. -- Journal of Quaternary Science The book, which is quite short, covers a surprisingly large number of topics in seven well-organized main chapters. The overall impression of the book is clearly positive and the authors are to be congratulated for having undertaken such a formidable task. -- World Meteorological Organization Bulletin Provides a good introduction to the aspects of Quaternary research indicated by the title...a good book and highly recommended to all who are teaching or studying environmental change. -- Boreas Book Reviews
