About this book

This book is the second of three volumes in which the recent knowledge of the extent and chronology of Quaternary glaciations has been compiled on a global scale. This information is seen as a fundamental requirement, not only for the glacial community, but for the wider user-community of general Quaternary workers. The glacial limits were mapped in ArcView, the Geographical Information System (GIS) used by the work group. Included with the publication is a CD with digital maps, showing glacial limits, end moraines, ice-dammed lakes, glacier-induced drainage diversions and the locations of key sections through which the glacial limits are defined and dated.

Media reviews
I value this book very highly in my personal library as a source of reference and inspiration. Indeed, for many I am sure that it will form the catalyst for further research endeavours on Quaternary glaciation in North America. Each chapter provides me with an updated compilation of the state of the art for specific areas of North America, written by researchers who are actively involved in reconstructing Quaternary glaciations. I therefore recommend that this volume occupies a space on the book shelves of all who are interested in Quaternary glaciations. -David, J.A. Evans, Quaternary Science Reviews, 2006 "...this volume definitely helps advance understanding of Earth's more recent glacial record and opens the door to synthetic global studies. It is to be highly recommended (mandatory reading for graduate students) and every library will certainly need a copy." -N.Eyles, Department of Geology, University of Toronto, in PALAEO
