About this book

This book is an introduction to polar and other glacial landscapes. It shows the difference between ice sheets, ice caps and glaciers, illustrates the different types of sea ice, and introduces many other kinds of ice and snow. It includes many periglacial features, i.e. those occurring in cold but ice-free areas, and also provides an introduction to the landscapes left behind once the ice has retreated (postglacial features).

The polar regions are warming at a greater rate than most other parts of the planet – which has major long-term implications for the climate. This book, in helping people understand the characteristics of such ice-dominated landscapes, is therefore essential reading for those interested in climate change.

It is also an essential guide to those travelling to high latitudes, whether visiting as a tourist or researcher – or from the comfort of an armchair.
