This hypertext begins with an introductory overview of the major topics in glaciology and glacial geology. Each topic is linked to a Web page intended to discuss that topic at a level appropriate for first-year university students. Those pages are linked where appropriate to recognize the intimate interrelationships among topics, rather than linear connections between them. Each page allows the option to continue upward into a more advanced discussion of the topic at hand or onward into discussion of the next topic at the same level. Topics covered include: systems: budget and flow, morphology and classification, glaciers with space and with time, erosional and depositional processes and landscapes, meltwater, pro- and paraglacial environments, eustasy and isostasy.
