Description - Glacier Science and Environmental Change by Peter G. Knight

The study of glaciers has been invigorated in recent years by new techniques such as remote sensing and by the growing awareness of the importance of glaciers as evidence of past, present and future global climate change. This important new book synthesises the current state of knowledge in all the key subdisciplines which together constitute glacier science, and is written in such a way as to be intelligible to scientists with a range of different backgrounds. The long contributions are written by major international glaciologists, with shorter "case-study" material that sometimes challenge the orthodox thinking. Glacier Science and Environmental Change will be invaluable reading for all those involved in this rapidly developing field.
