Deformation of Glacial Materials (Geological Society Special by A. J. Maltman

By A. J. Maltman

The circulate of glacier ice can produce buildings which are awesome and lovely. linked sediments, too, can advance fantastic deformation buildings, and examples are remarkably good preserved in Quaternary deposits. even supposing such positive factors have lengthy been famous, they're now the topic of latest awareness from glaciologists and glacial geologists. This selection of papers addresses how the equipment for unravelling deformation constructions advanced lately by way of structural geologists can be utilized for glacial fabrics, and the possibilities provided to structural geologists via glacial fabrics for learning deformation in rocks. There are authoritative stories by way of prime scientists with a world insurance. Readership: Quaternary Geologists, glaciologists, glacial geomorphologists, structural geologists, sedimentologists, engineering geologists, ultimate 12 months undergraduates and Masters degrees. additionally to be had: float Exploration in Glaciated Terrain - ISBN 1862390827 Cryospheric structures: Glaciers And Permafrost - ISBN 1862391750 The Geological Society of LondonFounded in 1807, the Geological Society of London is the oldest geological society on the planet, and one of many biggest publishers within the Earth sciences.The Society publishes a variety of fine quality peer-reviewed titles for lecturers and execs operating within the geosciences, and enjoys an enviable overseas acceptance for the standard of its work.The many parts within which we put up in include:-Petroleum geology-Tectonics, structural geology and geodynamics-Stratigraphy, sedimentology and paleontology-Volcanology, magmatic experiences and geochemistry-Remote sensing-History of geology-Regional geology courses
