Sediments are the most valuable form of physical evidence for past Earth surface processes. They have the potential to build up an archive of events and provide a window into the past. Through careful examination of sediments the shifting patterns of surface processes across space and time are revealed, allowing us to reconstruct past environments and environmental change. This book is a guide to the standard techniques employed to read the sedimentary record of former glaciers and ice sheets.

Review:

'An excellent clear and concise guide.'
Dr Ian Alsop, University of Saint Andrews

A Practical Guide to the Study of Glacial Sediments deserves to achieve a large circulation; it is designed to be taken into the field, and fortunately, it is cheaper.
Boreas Book Reviews Vol 34

' A practical guide to the study of glacial sediments fills a gap in the array of recent
undergraduate textbooks.'

'I suspect that A practical guide to the study of glacial sediments will be another best-seller from the author of the widely used textbook Glaciers and glaciation.
As a teacher, I have been presented with an accessibly written and well-illustrated textbook that might substitute much of my own teaching material.'


The Holocene 15, 7 pp 1100-1103

I would unhesitatingly recommend this excellent book not only to undergraduates or postgraduates undertaking a glacial geologic/geomorphic research project, but also to colleagues wanting to get quickly up to speed on the established techniques in glacial field research.


Martin Brook, Massey University
