This comprehensive volume outlines the distinctive processes and characteristics of glaciovolcanic eruptions, with reference to terrestrial and Martian occurrences, and how they can be used to unravel planetary palaeoclimatic histories. Supported by abundant photos, this is an ideal reference for academic researchers and postgraduate students.
Supported by abundant diagrams and photos from the authors' extensive collections, this book outlines where eruptions have occurred and will occur in the future on Earth, the resulting hazards that are unique to volcano-ice interactions, and how the deposits are used to unravel planetary palaeoclimatic histories. It has a practical focus on lithofacies, glaciovolcanic edifice morphometry and construction, and applications to palaeoenvironmental studies. Providing the first global summary of past and current work, this book also identifies those areas in need of further research, making this an ideal reference for academic researchers and postgraduate students, in the fields of volcanology, glaciology, planetary science and palaeoenvironmental studies.
