Summary "Now in its fourth edition, this classic text covers the physical principles underlying the behavior of glaciers---terrestrial ice bodies originating as accumulations of snow---including mountain glaciers, small ice caps, ice sheets, and ice shelves. New and expanded chapters discuss climate change topics, including: how ice core studies obtain information about past climate and atmospheric composition; the reaction of glaciers and ice sheets to global warming; quaternary climate history and the ice ages; and the challenge of projecting future sea-level rise. The book explores many additional topics of interest to geologists and geophysicists who study tectonics and geomorphology."--BOOK JACKET.
