Book description

The study of volcano-ice interactions, or 'glaciovolcanism', is a field experiencing exponential growth. This comprehensive volume presents a discussion of the distinctive processes and characteristics of glaciovolcanic eruptions, their products, and landforms, with reference to both terrestrial and Mars occurrences. 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.

'All earth scientists would enjoy a dip into this book. For those contemplating serious study or research in glaciovolcanism, the book should be studied from cover to cover - it will become the standard reference text for glaciovolcanism for the next few years at least.'

'This remarkable and detailed book synthesizes an extraordinary quantity of knowledge across different fields. The first chapters introduce the importance of glaciovolcanism, the various types of ice-volcano interactions that can occur and their occurrences around the world from Iceland to Antarctica. This section, like all those in the book, is richly supported by references, making this a valuable book for anyone with even vaguely related academic interests. This book is an extraordinary and very thorough survey of glaciovolcanism. It should be read by anyone with an interest in Earth system processes and the formation and evolution of other planets, and by those sitting in an airport lounge who want to do more than just ponder how a volcano can delay a flight.'

'Glaciovolcanism on Earth and Mars: Products, Processes and Paleoenvironmental Significance is an excellent addition to an exciting field of research. It represents the first comprehensive textbook-style volume dedicated entirely to the study of glaciovolcanism and comes with impeccable timing as this area of research is currently experiencing rapid growth … The comprehensive collection of references is probably the greatest contribution of this book and is an invaluable resource for anyone working in the field. Inevitably, Glaciovolcanism on Earth and Mars: Products, Processes and Paleoenvironmental Significance will accelerate the rate of glaciovolcanic research, improve appropriate referencing, and encourage interdisciplinary and international collaborations.'
