Field techniques in glaciology and glacial geomorphology / Bryn Hubbard, Neil F. Glasser.

Title: Field techniques in glaciology and glacial geomorphology / Bryn Hubbard, Neil F. Glasser.
Author(s): Hubbard, Bryn.
Glasser, Neil F.
Date: 2005.
Publisher: Chichester: Wiley
Abstract: Text book for 2nd/3rd year undergraduate students of physical geography, environmental science and earth science. Aimed at field investigators and those wishing to know how published information was collected. Focuses on practice rather than theory and on techniques available at modest cost. Discusses relationship between field glaciology and glaciological theory. Contains chapters on: planning and conducting glaciological fieldwork; character, sampling and analysis of glacial ice and glacier meltwater; hot water drilling and borehole instrumentation; ice radar; glacier mass balance and motion; glacigenic sediments; mapping glaciers and glacial landforms; monitoring and reconstructing glacier fluctuations.
