Module GLACIAL GEOMORPHOLOGY

Module code: GY315
Credits: 5
Semester: 2
Quota: 140
Department: GEOGRAPHY
International: Yes
Coordinator: Dr Stephen McCarron (GEOGRAPHY)
Overview Overview
 

The module will cover the range of erosional and depositional processes which have shaped physical landscapes in cold climate regions throughout the ''Quaternary'' period (the last 2.64 million years). The module focuses on geomorphological change by glacial ice masses with special attention paid to understanding the development of Irelandís glacial landscapes. The evidence around us of environmental change over these per-historic time periods provides an important long-term records of large-scale controls on global climate development. They can thus provide a context for the examination of modern concerns about accelerated global environmental change.
