An introduction for courses that involve some knowledge of glacial geology and sediments of formerly glaciated terrains. The early chapters describe depositional processes at modern glacier and ice-sheet margins relating sediments and landforms in recurring "landsystems".

Seventy-five years ago this theory had widely proved its truth, and glacial geology can be said to have been established as a science. Fifty years ago The Geological Society of America was founded. Thus the Society has witnessed half the time since Agassiz’ great discovery and two-thirds of the history of glacial geology. WHAT IS GLACIAL GEOLOGY AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT? Glacial geology is the study of the landforms and sediments created by ice sheets and glaciers, both past and present. Within Earth history, ice sheets and glaciers have grown and decayed many times, making them a key part of the Earth’s environmental system (Box ). Glacial geology of the study area has been described by several investigators. Stoller () discussed the glacial geology of the Saratoga quadrangle, and LaFleur (, ), Dineen and Rogers (), and DeSimone and LaFleur () investigated glacial-lake stages, deglacial events, and depositional environments in the Hudson-Mohawk lowlands. department of the interior united states geological survey ** ***** ** 1:j * geologic * 1:j 1:j * quadrangle maps * 1:j 1:j of the 1:j ~ * 1:j united states ~ * geology * of the blockhouse quadrangle.

Abstract. The zoning of glaciated countryside is proceeding at a rapid pace. Prompted by the desire to maintain the rural character while raising existing property values. and to protect uncommitted land from misuse, planning organizations at all levels of government are attempting to control and design anticipated growth by land use regulation.
