Description - Glaciers by Peter Knight
This is an essential reference book for students, professional geologists and researchers and would be ideal for those who want either a rapid update or an introduction to the subject. Includes coverage of important new developments within glaciology, including recent ice-sheet drilling programmes, stable isotope analysis, and new models in glacier hydrochemistry, basal-layer processes and glacier dynamics. Research-based approach bridges the gap between student texts and research journals, while remaining accessible to broad readership. Avoids the use of advanced mathematics making the book easy to read and ideal for readers with little mathematical background. Covers not only the history of research of glaciers, but also its future.
