Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary This volume derives from a meeting held in London in March 1989. It examines the processes responsible for sedimentation in modern glacimarine environments, and how such modern studies can be used as analogues in the interpretation of ancient glacimarine sequences. Sediments released from glaciers grounded in tidewater, floating ice shelves, ice tongues, icebergs and sea ice form complex sequences governed by glaciological, oceanographic, sedimentary and biogenic controls. The book will be of relevance to all scientists concerned with high and middle latitude marine environments.
