Glaciers provide an unparalleled tool for studying global environmental change. This book is the first of its kind concentrating on the paleoenvironmental record archived in mid- and low-latitude glaciers. By concentrating mainly on the last 500 years of these records, we can now see that laws enacted to protect our environment in Europe and North America are providing positive results. Documenting global mid- and low-latitude paleoenvironmental records in glaciers, this volume forms a timely and essential complement to the wealth of literature on polar and Greenland ice sheet records.

This text is directed towards undergraduate and graduate university audiences and forms an ideal supplement in courses dealing with climate and global environmental change, glaciology, and natural resources management. It is also suitable in helping teach application of innovative analytical and interpretive methods and would be an excellent example of the rapidly emerging discipline of "Forensic Earth Science".

Industry Reviews

From the reviews of the first edition:

"This is the first book devoted entirely to records preserved in mid- and low-latitude glaciers ... . The collection of papers contained in this book represents some of the leading research and development in this field. It is presented in a readable book format of coherent chapters, with useful sidebar information widening the audience from simply those working in the field to students or researchers wishing to obtain background knowledge in the subject." (Elizabeth Ruth Thomas, Journal of Paleolimnology, Vol. 36, 2006)
