The flow of glacier ice can produce structures that are striking and beautiful. Associated sediments, too, can develop spectacular deformation structures and examples are remarkably well preserved in Quaternary deposits. Although such features have long been recognized, they are now the subject of new attention from glaciologists and glacial geologists. However, these workers are not always fully aware of the methods for unravelling deformation structures evolved in recent years by structural geologists, who themselves may not be fully aware of the opportunities offered by glacial materials. This book, and the conference from which it stemmed, were conceived of as a step towards bridging this apparent gap between groups of workers with potentially overlapping interests.
