We wish to express our gratitude to the Editors of this series - Ray Bradley, John A. Matthews, Neil Roberts and Martin Williams - and the Edward Arnold commissioning editor responsible for the Key Issues in Environmental Change series, Laura McKelvie, for inviting us to write this book on glaciers and environmental change. Our thanks also go to Luciana O'Flaherty for her patience during the completion of the book. Special thanks are due to John A. Matthews for numerous discussions both in the office and in the field about different aspects of Holocene glacier variations and environmental change. We also wish to thank Colin K. Ballantyne and Danny McCarroll for stimulating discussions during joint fieldwork both in Norway and Scotland. Our colleagues at the Geology and Geography departments at the University of Bergen have encouraged us during the writing process. Finally, we would like to thank our families for their patience during the work involved with this book.
