Summary and Info
The flow of glacier ice can produce structures that are striking and beautiful. Associated sediments, too, can develop spectacular deformation structures, and examples are remarkably well preserved in Quaternary deposits. Although such features have long been recognized, they are now the subject of new attention from glaciologists and glacial geologists. This collection of papers addresses how the methods for unravelling deformation structures evolved in recent years by structural geologists can be used for glacial materials, and the opportunities offered to structural geologists by glacial materials for studying deformation in rocks. There are authoritative reviews by leading scientists with a global coverage. Readership: Quaternary Geologists, glaciologists, glacial geomorphologists, structural geologists, sedimentologists, engineering geologists, final year undergraduates and Masters levels.
