This module examines geomorphological aspects of the cryosphere, focusing upon landforms and sediments created by ice sheets, glaciers and periglacial processes (past and present). Process-landform relationships will be used to infer past variations of the cryosphere, and identify key research questions for future cold-climate geomorphology.
By the end of the module, students will be able to demonstrate:
Critical analysis of controversies competing theories
Synthesis and summary of l information from a range of academic sources
Examination (120 minutes)
