      Observations and theories are presented and reviewed about the processes of glacier erosion of rock and unlithified sediment beds both when they are frozen and unfrozen. Erosional bedrock landforms, such as roches moutonnées, indicate two principal subglacial erosional processes, plucking and abrasion. Where supraglacially derived debris is. Climate change - Climate change - Climate change since the advent of humans: The history of humanity—from the initial appearance of genus Homo over 2,, years ago to the advent and expansion of the modern human species (Homo sapiens) beginning some , years ago—is integrally linked to climate variation and change. Homo sapiens has experienced nearly two full glacial .

    Glacial landform - Glacial landform - Glacial deposition: Debris in the glacial environment may be deposited directly by the ice (till) or, after reworking, by meltwater streams (outwash). The resulting deposits are termed glacial drift. As the ice in a valley glacier moves from the area of accumulation to that of ablation, it acts like a conveyor belt, transporting debris located beneath. Processes of glacial transportation. Glaciers move very slowly. As they move, they transport material from one place to another: As freeze-thaw weathering. occurs along the edge of the glacier.

    The earliest known glaciation occurred about billion years ago and is recognized in Ontario, Canada, from older tills that have lithified into a rock called tillite. Tillites contain angular, unsorted rock fragments, many of which are polished, striated, or faceted. Written by an internationally recognised expert in the field, this book represents an important step forward in the modern understanding of glacial process sedimentology. As such, Till: A Glacial Process Sedimentology is an indispensable resource for advanced undergraduates and researchers in sedimentology, glacier science and related areas.

Edited by: John Menzies and Jaap J.M. van der Meer Reconstructing patterns of past glaciation is important because it provides the crucial link between glacial processes and history, ice masses, the wider Earth system and the applied properties of glaciated terrains.

The Wisconsin Glacial Episode, also called the Wisconsin glaciation, was the most recent glacial period of the North American ice sheet complex.

This advance included the Cordilleran Ice Sheet, which nucleated in the northern North American Cordillera; the Innuitian ice sheet, which extended across the Canadian Arctic Archipelago; the Greenland ice sheet; and the massive Laurentide Ice Sheet.
