Modern analogues in quaternary palaeoglaciological reconstruction.

Evans, D. J. A. (2009) 'Modern analogues in quaternary palaeoglaciological reconstruction.', Quaternary science reviews., 28 (3-4). pp. 181-182.


This issue of Quaternary Science Reviews contains a set of five papers relating to the theme of Modern analogues in Quaternary palaeoglaciological reconstruction. This was the subject of a special session held at the XVII INQUA Congress in Cairns, Australia in 2007 at which a series of papers communicated recent advances in: a)the study of glacial landform–sediment associations at modern glacier margins; b) deciphering process–form relationships beneath existing ice sheets; and c) the use of climatic and glaciological parameters from modern glacier systems in the reconstruction of ancient ice masses. Each of these sub-themes are aimed at improving our understanding of contemporary glacier–landscape interactions and using that knowledge to make more informed palaeoglaciological reconstructions.
