A Practical Guide to Glacial Sediments, 2nd edition

The first edition of “A Practical Guide to the study of Glacial Sediments” (Edited by David Evans and Doug Benn) was an essential handbook to all students of glacial geology. It has helped countless undergraduate and MSc dissertation students, and my well-thumbed copy has come with me every time I go into the field.

It is therefore a delight to see the second edition, published in 2021, with numerous updates and full colour.

  1. does one recieve notice when a book order ships? (To the U.S.A.) I just order the Glacial Sedimentology book about a week ago and just wondering.

  2. I’m doing my Geography NEA project about erosional features being able to show past ice movement, and one of my sub-questions being about till-fabric analysis, so hopefully this book will be very useful!!
