The author has ventured to depart from the common usage which subdivides geology into a number of departments, and to treat in immediate connection with each geological process the land forms and the rock structures which it has produced.

Glaciers have always played an important role in history, and currently, they are observed as climate change sentinels. Glacier melt rate is increasing, and its mass balance is continuously negative. This issue deserves accurate and in-depth studies.
This book has a single purpose: to explain how it is even possible to reconstruct the history of the Earth from data available in the present. The emphasis is methodological: rather than explaining what is known, we shall look at how it is known.
