Glacial Geology

This section of the website focuses on former ice sheets. How can we tell how ice sheets behaved in the past? How did ice sheets interact with past climate change? In this section, you can find out about the different types of glacier landforms and sediments. You can also learn about the characteristic types and styles of glaciation under Glacial Landsystems.

Here, we focus on examples from the Antarctic Ice Sheet, the Patagonian Ice Sheet and the British Ice Sheet.
