The Principles of Glacier Mechanics
Relatively simple concepts are followed by more mathematically advanced chapters. Develops concepts from the bottom up: a working knowledge of calculus is assumed, but beyond that, the important physical processes are developed from elementary principles.
Draws many connections between recent glaciological research and topics of concern to glacial geologists including the origin of ice-age landforms and modeling of vanished ice sheets.
