Glaciology, Ice Ages and Climate Change

Geology 111

Usual Description

Glaciers respond to climate changes by growing or shrinking. Humans can recognize past climate changes because growing glaciers scour Earth’s surface and shrinking glaciers leave characteristic deposits. Moreover, glacial ice itself contains a detailed record of climate changes. This course uses glacier dynamics and glacial geology to determine how climate changed in the past, analyzes Earth’s climate system to identify factors that contribute to climate change, and assesses natural and anthropogenic causes of climate change.
